I am considering doing one, i think they are so cool.

Thanks!

Great Start and it looks like you have a handful of help! Great having the family participate in the build. Too bad the weather is closing in on us, I thought I'd be finished this past July but that did not happen.
The one thing I learned from this site and ultimately from my own build is you can not over insulate!
Again great start and hope you get a break from the winter.

Cost is not too big a factor, think about all the use you will get from it. I can't wait until I have my first pizza party!

I will have to figure out cost. I got all the concrete block from craigslist, price free! 10 blocks here,20 blocks there, etc. the brick was also free, old style brick. I am actually thinking of using some other style bricks because I am probably going to build an outdoor fireplace/cooking area, so I want it all to match. I will need some stone for the veneer of the bottom area. Might be able to get it free, not sure yet.

So far I have paid for two bags of lime, about 7 bucks. Two bags of fire clay, about 40 bucks. Not sure how much concrete, but I have all the receipts. Sand is free. Rebar? Not sure, some free from craigslist, also bought some, will have to go through the receipts. Firebrick at 1.40 a piece, got receipts.

Once everything is done I will do an accounting of everything and post it.

Ok, its been a few months since I have posted anything. Winter got cold, on the few warm days I was not motivated enough to uncover everything and start laying bricks. Procrastination sucks! I have been busy the last couple of months working on this oven, so let me try to get caught up with the pictures, which will probably take a few posts over the next week or so.

Here is the start of the outer wall.

Thumbs up Re: NJ, worlds fastest oven build - NOT!!!

That is a nice looking oven! Are you filling the enclosure with vermiculite? Any ceramic insulation? You make it look easy

Lee, yes I insulated and filled it with vermiculite. Here are some pics.

Batt insulation, rated at over 2,500 degrees, I probably won't get the oven that hot, but would it cook the pizzas in a few seconds?



I then used some metal to hold the batts close to the dome



Then filled it with vermiculite, a lot of vermiculite!

I put a chimney clean-out door at the top rear of the outer enclosure. Just so I could check whats happening inside over the years. It was probably not necessary, but if the vermiculite ever settles and I need to add more, I can.

Here is Danger-boy looking in the door



Here is the view from the door

I got the roof partially completed. Metal studs, plywood, tar paper, then metal roofing.

Here is a side view with the copper colored metal drip edges installed.


A pic from the other side.
