Another San Diegan taking the plunge. Greg I finally started. Got 4 courses of the block up. Now trying to decide on how high. When everyones WFO are done we should start a monthly circuit between houses. I'll try to start a thread on my build

I don't know if you could afford Ryan's daily rate....he eats me out of house and home. I am building this WFO just to see if we can feed him enough pizza.

Constant cleaning slows down the construction but I think it pays off in the end. I am 6'2" 270lbs. I don't think I'll be crawling around inside the oven anytime soon.

Images below of 5th row.

Default 6th row transition

6th row starts with the last tough transtion between the arch and dome. In order to maintain as much strenght as possible, I went with full bricks and hollowed up a wedge to fit the arch.

Not very pretty but it works. A lot of sins can be covered with extra mortar.
