Les,

Amazing job on the build. Just when I thought I had decided to go with an enclosure I looked at your build and now am reconsidering going with the igloo design. Living in a colder climate like I do I go back and forth about whether or not an igloo would hold the temps for 3 or 4 days but I figure if I just insulate properly and sufficiently it should be fine.

That ash pan is an awesome idea. I will have to remember that one.

Nate

Thanks Nate,

You can insulate the igloo to do wonderful things. I think the consensus is that an enclosure would be easier to keep water tight but I have had no issues. The location of the oven would have block views into the back yard so I went the igloo route (after the wife made up my mind) - no regrets.

Les,

The whole idea of an enclosure blocking the view to a large portion of my yard is the exact reason I keep going back to the igloo. I hadn't considered the issues of moisture but up here with all the snow we get I should think on that some more. Thanks for the reply.

Nate

I was considering igloo at first but then realized my oven would potentially get constantly wet.. and that's not so nice with the winters we have in here. Also even little water in the stucco could probably cause it to crack/flake during the winter freeze.

So I'm building an enclosure.

No problem so far. I had a pic w/ more snow then this but after 10 inches does it really matter?

That is a nice amount of snow. That is about what we normally have up here in Idaho but this year the most we have seen at one time is about 5 inches.

The more I think about the whole stucco finish and moisture control I just have to ask...why would they finish entire houses in stucco if there is a concern about moisture control? Even in dry climates they still get rain and I don't see huge complaints from all over the country about the leaking stucco. What am I missing? Am I that far off in my thinking?

Stucco is a good weather barrier. The over hangs on the eves and gables are an important part of the protection though. I think that if the stucco job is done right for any application it is used it would be good protection for some time. I kicked this around myself until last week whether or not to have an igloo or an inclosure. Friends and family were in the consensus that the igloo looks "cool". I wanted the weather protection of an inclosure and the looks of an igloo. I settled for an open roof over. It feel that it will afford me the best of both syles.

Nate,

Not all stucco is alike. I used a product made by Dryvit - It has an acrylic base so it is flexible and water proof. Definitely worth the dollars and you can have it colored to whatever you want.

Thanks for the information Les. I just keep going back and forth between the igloo idea and the enclosure idea. I don't REALLY have to decide until my oven dome is done right?
