Corner builds look so . I really like the monolithic arch poured with the hearth. Mine is not a corner build but that is the way I attacked the lintel over the wood storage.
Its looking great, will stay tuned .

Thank you Utah,
I don't call it an "enclosure" though. I really like many of enclosures that I have seen on this forum and I really like many of the Igloos too. I decided to split the difference.

Hey Russell,

The build looks great so far. I am just a few hours north of you in Eastern Idaho. I will be watching your build closely.

Good luck!

Nate

Hey Russell,

You said you have more pics of your base build...where can we find them? I am very interested in your design (since it will probably fit my yard better) and storage area. Let me know where I can find them.

Thanks,

Nate

Russell,

Austin loved his time there, it was only one season though. He is leaving on a mission to Romania in July. He has a skier get hung up on a chair and was going on up the hill, he asked Austin for a knife and he cut himself down, 8 foot drop but he was ok. A little stress for the newbie operator. He said that I was going skiing before the end of the season, I went, it had been 20 years, still had the skills and the desire, but the thighs were on fire after 3/4 of a run. Anyway back tot he topic at hand.

I think that the advice from clofgreen is good, uniformity is great, We winged it and the inside of our barrel looks really rough, not very pretty. there does not seem to be any problems with the joints even though the gap width is all over the place. No cracking or drop offs that I can see. Post to Tscarborough with the question or search his threat and photos, he knows his stuff.

Good luck,

Derk

Tight as possible on the front without being anal about it and the back doesn't really matter. Ideal refractory joints are 1/8 or less, but that is not realistic for a Pompeii oven.

Keep them as tight as possible on the face, don't worry about the backside, and when you do get larger joints on the inside, no problem.

Nice photos Russell! I am planning a "voluntourism" trip to Ecuador this summer. Looking forward to seeing that part of the world

On your heat break - I'm planning something similar to what you've done on your floor - a piece of stainless steel tubing between the oven and vent floor. Can I ask what you have underneath the tubing?

Also - in the picture it looks like your arch is going to but right up against your dome, but I guess you are still thinking through that? It seemed to me that there would be much more heat loss through the arch than the floor (heat rising and all) so I ended up leaving about a quarter inch gap all the way around between my vent arch and inner arch. Picture is of the first two bricks in the arch. I will be filling the gap in both the front and the back with insulating materials.

Hey Russell,

Where did you get the foam glass from and how pricey is it? I am interested in using that in place of the vermiculite/concrete mix if it is accessible and not too spendy.

Thanks,
Nate
