Thanks for the details! I was thinking of doing a very similar concrete pour.

There are just too many good ideas on this forum! I'm sort of glad I ran into trouble last fall. The delay is giving me a lot of time to look at ideas

sorry so long on the update, but Im a fair weather builder...

I managed to get the trim work partially done along with the SOFIT. I had never even heard of the word SOFIT untill about 3 weeks ago. Anyway, here are some pics of the oven as of this morning. The trim is all Hardi material but I did use just a bit of real wood trim to make the Sofit look good. So far, thats the only combustable material on the structure. And now for the pics

Wow! Turning out really nice Steve. I'm totally impressed. I was a bit worried 3 months ago, but you've done incredible work. Congrats!

I think I first heard the word soffit a year-and-a-half ago. Funny how these things never make their way into your vocabulary, yet you see and live with them every day. But then again, I'm still trying to figure out how to fit antidisestablishmentarianism into a sentence that makes sense.

(geeze, I crack myself up. Sorry for the stupidity!)

Nice work Steve.
I am so far behind you... too busy cooking I guess.

It looks like you have figured out the pizza cooking, because your floor looks like
it's getting lots of use and your pizza looked perfect.

I, however, seem to have a dilemma now... I was going to leave my WFO dome shaped, but after seeing your enclosure.... hmmm..
What's a Dave to do?

Congrats on the build !

Dave

Dave,

If I could go back and do it all over...i might have left it looking like an igloo and dressed it up a bit! So much work and the pizza tastes the SAME!!

I think the Waco Davidians were strong proponents of antidisestablishmentarianism!

[QUOTE=Kemo;16287]All,

I have been lurking here for a while and finally jumped in and started on my oven!

So far so good with only a few problems. I borrowed a shovel and a dirty hoe from a buddy of mine, he also lent me a wheel barrow (sp?).

BTW, I'm a computer nerd and have never done anything like this before, so wish me luck.

Nice one XJ - Steve starts out with nothing - no equipment, no skills, and ends up with a beautiful oven in his back yard.

Steve - I'll try that sentence on my wife. She'll look at me cross-eyed and shake her head and mutter uninteligibly as she tries to ignore me. Good one!
