Default CLOSED The DOME: Greg's Pompeii 42" - San Diego

Thanks for the encouragement. Felt great to drop in that last piece. Spent all day yesterday trying to wrap my brain around the exterior arch and chimminey connection.

I had never priced Dura Vent pipes before!!!!! HOLY SH#%T. I didn't know they made the stuff out of gold. $1400 for a anchor plate, a set of elbows, six feet of pipe and a spark arrestor!!!!!!!

The chimminey is going to be with in a foot of some hollow wood dry beams. In California, I don't want to take any chances; but jeeeeez.

Their goes what was left of my budget. Now I am going to have to make pizzas using smashed wonder bread and cheeze-wiz instead of Caputo Rosso Tipo pizza flour and mozzarella di bufala.

Ouch.

Greg,

Have you checked out this site yet.

Fireplace Products > Piping / Venting > Wood/All-Fuel Piping and Venting > 8 inch > DuraTech - DynamiteBuys.com

That should be a link to the 8" SS dura tech stuff. It looks like it would be about $500 for a 30 degree elbow set, 5' of pipe, the anchor plate and the cap. Their prices include shipping as well. Worth checking out.

Sorry Greg, it is $624.59 for everything in SS. Still a lot better than $1400

Congratulations Greg! The inside dome looks great! All that detailed work has gotten you into shape for your final outer arch and transitions to the anchor plate .
Hey, I know what you mean about the Duratech. I checked out those discount places and finally used barbecues.com. The only problem is they ship in the unprotected retail box and UPS dragged it to my office on a rope behind their truck. I returned the long pipe because of all the dents. The replacement was still dinged but at least it was round. I didn't need those elbows, but I know they were expensive.
Your oven and cooking area is going to look soooo nice. Can't wait to see it all.
Take care, Dino
