Dave's Northern Virginia Build
 
Hi All,
I am in the process of building an outdoor kitchen/pizza oven/Roman square in our back yard. The photos are here ---->

I am very impressed with everyone's projects. Excellent work guys, I hope I can run with the big dogs, or at least the chiwawa.

Thanks Neil,

It turns out you really do need extra fine sand for the floor mix. I kept having to pull up my bricks to remove a pebble.

Thanks. It started as just a pizza oven. But, since the back yard is on a slope I would have had to build it into the hill. Then I thought: it would be nice to have a flat surface in front of the oven. And then we probably want a counter to work on. How about a gas grill, and why not a large patio for a table and chairs.....I drew the line at a cold smoker.

It is the might as wells that kill you every time. :)

Just looked at all your pics. What an awesome project. I showed it to my wife and told her not to complain about the small scope of my oven build. The pics with the dog are the best. Nothing like a lab to keep you company.

Yep, those pictures of the dog are great, looking so happy to have a big dirt-park created just for him to enjoy!

An awesome project indeed! That is going to look great!

BTW, great idea on those rebar safety caps. Much cheaper to make than buying those OSHA caps. I will be doing the same as I have already gouged myself on my leg a couple of times walking over the blocks.

I see that you are making the sides to the entry arch wide the way I did. I don't know if it improved the strength of the arch, but it made me feel better about it. And I had no issues at all with the sides moving when I built the arches.
