Yes, you're there. Congratulations.

From now on, even though there is still plenty of work to do, you are reaping the benefits of your labor.

Thanks everyone, I'm loving this oven. Doing an eggplant parmesan in the oven this Friday. I'll post some pics.

Well I keep getting rained out here.... All this rain has put me almost 2 weeks behind schedule. I'm hoping to get my enclosure framed out next week and my roof on. Then back to my masonry putting on my stone veneer. Probably the most stressful element of my entire build has been trying to keep my dome/insulation dry during this monsoon season. Once I get my enclosure built I will finally be able to relax!!

Hello All,

I'm contemplating not putting any loose vermiculite over my 3" of ceramic fiber blanket. Any thoughts? The FB plans say if you have 3" of ceramic fiber blanket that it's not needed, but I was wondering if any other builders had their own take on this.

Thanks.

Since you are in firing mode, take some temp reading on the outside of the CF and see what you are seeing compared to ambient. Then decide. Loose Vermiculate is relatively cheap $10 a 4 cubic foot bag.
