Thumbs up Re: Ellie's WFO as it it built

Ellie,
I see the 'supervisor' in shining black overlooking the project with interest.
He/she might be the one to control your potential snake problem!

Lookin' good.

Cheers.

Neill

Gosh, i don't know if he can do it that quickly! JR, I bet you will be glad to get out of the horrific weather you have been seeing up there in Washington. We had nearly 80 degrees this last weekend but rainy now. I hope it is nice for your visit.

Neill, you are correct, he is pretty good with snakes and I have a Siamese that just pulls them out of the hole and kills them!! Maybe I will tell him to just leave it long as in the plans if we don't have enough blocks.

I am pleased with the progress so far and cannot wait to share with you guys.

Ellie,
I can't wait for you to enjoy the oven. They are a real buzz. I need to use mine more and will be putting the finishing touches to my outdoor kitchen today (painting). I still haven't used my new mixer, Sad isn't it?
We have an Australian Day public holiday on Monday and can't get to use the oven as we have other commitments.

Cheers.

Neill

Day 5

The floor is poured... wood on top to protect from the rain. Next step to pour the insulation mix.



Thanks for looking,
Ellie

Hi Ellie,

The Siamese is very nice. Just making sure you doing everything correctly. We have a white calico. Lots of drizzle on the central coast.

The cats seem to love this new "perch"!

Dale came over today to start the next phase. He is a mason with 33 years experience but has never done one of these ovens before. He is very good at what he does, so it should be a terrific oven.

Hi Ellie,
get Dale involved in the web site so if he does a great job (as I have no doubt he will) there are members who would grab his services especially as he is progressing at a fast rate.
Who knows what the future holds.
Is that shed full of wood yours or the neighbors? Quite a nice supply should one run low with their frequent oven firings eh?
You might also need to discourage pus from being too curious as he/she might end up in their one hot time unexpectedly.

Cheers,

Neill

Yep, Neill, you always nail it: that is why I put his picture on here. He is a good man and a good mason. I sent him the link to the Pompeii oven stuff just tonight.

Hey, have you ever tried to "discourage" a cat from doing anything? Ha ha, doesn't work, lol.

Wood is mine, we have oak mostly here.

Ellie

Ellie,

Looks like Dale is doing a great job... The fun part is installing the fire brick... and then all of the finish work on the outside of the structure...

Keep the pictures coming, it is fun to watch your oven come together.
