Default Re: oven base and floor

Hi Is,

You have a nice looking oven that will serve your stated functions. It will not do the things that you might want it to do, in the future because of the constant heat loss via the un-insulated base. It is, what it is. Many people here are on their 2nd to 5th build, maybe you will join that rank and file, if you get the bug. For now, cook something!

I thought maybe you would be able to remove the bricks that are not under the dome and fit the ceramic board then put another brick layer. But trust me my first oven I made the same mistake it worked fine!! Just didn't stay hot more than a few hours after the fire was removed. As others stated enjoy and move on
