KC,

Keep the Photos coming. That's the kind of framing I want for my oven.
Thanks for posting!

The framing wasn't that hard. It took me two days, mostly because I've never framed or used stell studs before. I used hand shears for 80% of the cuts before I tripped over the angle grinder and said "I bet that will work". Makes the cuts VERY quickly. Also watch your fingers when driving the screws! Buy the "pointed" tipped screws. They drive much easier.

I am past the framing part and will be applying a scratch coat this weekends as my final look will be a stone veener. Here was my framing completed before I applied the hardibacker. I did have a friend come over who has had some experience with metal framing and I was very pleased with the ens result.

What did you use to cut the hardibacker? Do you cut it like drywall?

For straight cuts I used an utility knive and cut it like sheetrock. For the curves and small cuts I used a metal blade on my jigsaw and that worked really well. Here is the oven with the walls in place.

You'd never know from the pics that you are novice framer.

Thanks for the pointers! This will be my first project with metal studs as well. Are you using steel or are they aluminum (or are they the same thing)? I've seen references to both in other places online. Which should we be using for this?

They call them steel (used 20 gauge) but they more resemble aluminum to me. Just can't wait to put the roof on as I am getting tired of all the small cuts.

I like the lower profile of your roof. What are you going to use for your roof?
