Here is a link to some photos. Pizza Oven - a photoset on Flickr The oven itself has been done for months and has preformed like a champ through all the cooks I have done in it. Being a procrastinator, I finally started framing last week and since have got the backerboard up and hope to wrap up a lot of it this weekend.

thanks Dave - I had never done any masonry work before in my life so this was a learning project for me. My favorite picture is the one of my wife's legs sticking out out of the oven as she was patching up a small gap for me.
She said she felt like "Hansel and Gretel" while she was in there.

That's funny! I wondered who was in there!
There sure seems to be a lack of oxygen while playing inside!

How is your cooking progressing?
Have you really got your oven figured out?

Nice looking oven. I might like to see it one day neighbor! I suppose it would be hard to get back to finishing the project once the oven is done and baking begins. I think I will be ready for a break too if I ever get to that point.

I got a few more pictures taken over the past day or two. Not real exciting as it is just the unfinished oven, but it is framed and ready to prep for stucco.
I am going to try and get that done within the next week or so and will hopefully have something pretty to look at in the end.

Is Rocklin part of the Gold Country, or the valley? Or both. :-)

Your oven is looking great, and the photo of your wife's legs... well, some things are priceless.

Let us know how the curing and cooking are going. That's the fun part.

Looks real nice. Good idea bringing electricity out there for lights.
