I Blew It !!
 
I was not aware of this site and built my base with the dimensions measuring 54" inches by 54" inches. Can I fit a 36" inch Pompeii hand made brick oven ?:

Sure you can. You have 18 inches to play with. 2 half bricks take 9 inches leaving you with 4 1/2 inches for insulation and cladding per side. Should be no problem for an igloo design.

Thanks Les, I am thinking the distance from back to front may be a little tight. Can I push the oven Opening in a few inches? So the back radius will be 18" and the oven opening to the middle be a little less, like 14" is that possible ?

I think you may need to have the opening on a corner. There are many ways to make that work and it gives you some room for the entry. I obviously haven't laid it out but I think it will work - a couple more glasses of wine and I know it will. ;)

Yep the wine ! Hilarious ! The corner installation won't work with the layout of my patio.

Bummer. If you want an entry (and vent) you need to add surface area.

Oh crap! What about a little canteliver on the front edge. I would hate to pour more concrete an add another stack of bricks. I want to start laying fire brick, I'm sick of the ground work and labour.
