Your vent and stack looks great. My vent was made from 22 gauge stainless steel, which I did not trust to hold up for many years, so I opted not to enclose it in the stucco.
Good luck,
Stephen

Well, last night was the first big fire in the oven, sadly it was a spurt of the moment fire at 11 pm after I was away all weekend so I did not cook on it, but I am thrilled with the ovens performance, it is everything I had hoped for. It took about 1.5 hours to get up to temp as it drove out the last bit of water, but once it did I threw on a few more small pieces of wood and the oven hit 1000F and stayed there for over an hour with no more additions. The outside of the enclosure never went over ambient temp. Today I'm gonna make up a batch of Mozz to prepare for what the next few days holds. I hope everyone who's done this is as happy with their oven as I am at this point!

PS. With no door it was still 550 5 hours later and 350 12 hours later at the top center of the dome.

Consider that sheet metal to be a form and cast reftractory material on to it. At the temperatures you will be running, the sheet metal will rust out in a year or two.
