materials list for 36" Pompeii oven
 
Hi,
It looks as though the 36" Pompeii oven would suit us very well. Can anyone point me at the complete materials list and plans for it?
Many thanks.

36 plans
 
There have been far more 42's than 36" built here.

I'll leave the material list to someone who has already built one,
If it's a help you can count bricks from my cad drawings of the 36:

Materials List (so far) - Updated 1/5
 
The building plans on the web site hold true (short of the many alterations and improvements suggested in these forums) for both size ovens. So far, the most challenging aspect was cutting the bricks to span the door opening, but with a little experimenting, it's not a big deal... Here's the running list:

Foundation
4" @ 71"x80" = 22 - 80# bags of concrete
(I used fiber reinforced concrete so no steel was necessary)

Stand
Roughly 48 blocks (I poured a lintle across the opening)
12 - #4 x 36" rebars
Each cell requires 1 60# bag of concrete ($3.29)

Hearth
6.5" hearth requires a smidge more than 8 cf of perlite (I got mine in 4 cf bags - $7.95)
1 - 94# bag of portland cement ($8.36)
6 - #4 x 10' rebars cut to fit ($4.29)
17 - 80# bags of concrete ($4)

Oven Dome & Floor
1 - 24" x 2.5" x 3/16" angle iron (stainless is nice)
200 fire bricks ($1.17)
1 - 25# bag fire clay ($8)
1 - 94# bag portland cement
2 - 60# bags general purpose sand ($2.49)

Stucco Finish (scratch coat and finish)
1 - 60# bag stucco cement ($4)
4 - 60# bags sand

Just add some paint or pigment to the stucco and you're done! :D Happy building...
