Default Grand Rapid's Latest Pizza Hut!

Well, it looks like we're going to have a few nice warm days ahead (50's plus), so I've decided to jump back into the WFO project! I enclosed the canopy, and added a kerosene heater and lighting so that we can continue to work for a few weeks if the weather turns on us again. I'm determined to get the dome built before the snow comes!

I cut the oven floor bricks earlier this week in the garage, and assembled them onto the insulation board with the 50/50 fireclay and sand mix for leveling.

Today I cut the entry bricks, and cut the soldier course bricks at a 15 degree angle using a simple wood jig screwed to the HF tile saw. It worked great.

I mixed up a bucket of homemade mortar (1 lime : 1 fireclay : 1 portland cement : 3 parts fine sand), and decided that since I still had some daylight left, I'd start assembling the bricks. I really like how well the homemade mortar works.

It wasn't long before I had to turn on the lights in the hut, but I actually got the entryway AND the soldier course assembled -- I'm really pleased with how much I was able to accomplish today...and it's still 60 degrees outside at 8:30 at night! That's amazing considering how much sub-32 degree weather we've had recently at night.

Tomorrow I'll start the second course of bricks, and keep working until I can't stand up anymore.

Nice setup with the shop lights.

Good choice on going homebrew. If I had to do it over again I would have used all homebrew and saved a ton of money.

It's looking great! I think you can get it finished in a couple of days at the rate you're going.

And, with the enclosure you have, you oughta be able to keep it above freezing with a small space heater.

OK, now I'm jealous. I finished my hearth on the 16th of October and shelved the project till spring. Little did we know that it would hit 70 in November in Michigan. the 10 day looks good, high 40's and 50's. Good Luck.
