Halogen lamp has been in place for 24 hours. A 4" thick expanded foam door is plugged in place. I removed the plug to be greeted with a nice brick flavoured waft of warm air.
The laser thermometer gave readings of 48c at the floor rising to 120c at the dome apex which remained for 5 minutes, so its leading me to believe that the heat has soaked nicely into the structure too. Reset the plug and its now being left for a further 48 hours.

You need the door of for the moisture to escape.

This Halogen Lamp thing seems to be working!

Where am i now...erm...80+ hours of constant lamp and temperature readings this morning were 95c at the floor rising steadily through the chains to 150c at the keystone.
A massive steamy waft of warm air upon pulling out the Celotex, and the disabled PIR housing on the lamp is showing signs of melting!
Might stick a Casserole in there this afternoon...who needs wood!!!

Leave a gap in the top of the Cellotex you're using as a door to let the moisture escape from the oven.

Like Laku said, leave a gap to move the air and moisture out..

Nearly at the solstice, and its only just getting warm over here! I've not had so much as a couple of new seasoning fires either! Boo!
i have been able to finish off my "area", by paving near to the oven and creating a raised bed and "watch and eat" area.





Next plan, is the tear down of the chimney, and redesign with some twin walled stainless flue and rain cap along with another course of brick on the chimney "socket". I had radial expansion cracking over the dome from the original single wall flue due to heat and i'm hoping that if i can separate the dome render from the chimney, plus insulated flue i'll minimise that happening again. The cracks allowed rainwater in, and Jack Frost went to work popping the render after a spell of minus 10 through January. I'm looking forward to working on "Pele" again!
