That's what I want to do, just wondering if that looked ok. It's over 1/4" of the total brick but I guess it'll have to do. Also if I wrap my oven in 3" of FB blanket can I dump my vermiculite over the top to fill my enclosure or do I need to estimate some more width for a vermicrete mix to coat my FB blanket as well. Just trying to figure out my enclosure/pad.

and yes I can take it kbartman... as long as you can..

I'm trying to make my foundation slab as small as possible. I'm wondering if the placement of my metal studs can be moved in 1" closer to my oven. They are shown below away from my fire blanket by 1". Can I move them in closer by 1"? This would still allow me to fill the oven with loose vermiculite all around by 4".

Your landing looks a bit short to my eyes. 4" beyond your oven? You probably need at least 9", maybe more. if you are building an oven house, think about how you will get your flue inside the housing. It requires a longer landing.

And also, seems like if you want a small base, you should cut your stretchers to 4.5" (I think you said you had them 6" long) to make the outside radius of your oven 3" smaller.

What about the 1" gap between my blanket and metal studs? Can I eliminate that? The pic below has a few more dimensions on it to clarify.

I believe you can cut a "portion" of the metal base stud on the inside near the intersection of the stud and dome without adversely affect the strength and eliminate the 1" gap since there is 3" of CF plus your planning on dry vermiculite. I cannot tell but how big is your vent opening, it appears small.

Just don't put a stud centered at that particular point.

My studs are placed so they themselves are not an issue. What I was wondering: can I have my studs butting right up against my fiber blanket? My oven opening is 208 sqin. My vent opening is 55.77 sqin at the bottom and 34.67 sqin at the top. I was going to taper the opening, and I'm using a 6" ss chimney

Bread Earth and Fire. Has anyone read this book? Come to find out the guy who wrote it lives a few minutes from my house! I've eaten at his brick oven restaurant quite a bit and it's amazing!
