Steady, though light rain in Tallahassee so far. Hope you ride out the storm without problems. Bruce

Well are you still bailing out the oven or did it stay dry? Curious minds want to know. Bruce

Well my blue tarps were old and worn so the insulation got a pretty good soaking...............I replaced the tarps with new ones, this should keep any more water out………… The rainy season has begun in central Florida …………. So I’m Trying to dry out between the daily afternoon rain showers ……….. I was hoping to be further along at the time…………Once the chimney goes up, keeping the water out the enclosure will be quite a challenge before its completion.

Family has been in town so no progress lately......hoping to get something accomplished this weekend.

Sorry to hear about the leaks. It's probably a good idea to keep an old tarp to have under the new one. It will protect the new one from snags and tears as well as provide extra protection from rain. I know what you mean by wanting to be further along, in addition to the afternoon rains it going to be really hot soon. Still, it seems like your build is zooming along compared to mine. Bruce

It's been 1 week since the tropical storm soaking.........Still wet as day 1........ bummer........Decided to do some pre curing with 500w lights below hearth, figuring that it may help the dry out…………… Had to retire the IT for the exercise ball………..Whom ever thought of this was a genius………I thought the radius was going to be a problem seems to be working well with modeling clay……….11th course complete…..

Cool Re: My 40" Inch pizza oven in Florida

12th course complete.........The exercise ball is the ticket for dry fit and mortaring the courses......... Works well, over inflate set and mortar brick then deflate and make adjustments as you concentrically tap inward……looking for suggestions on how to complete dome closure.
