From what I can see you are doing a barrel oven design? Still snowing at this time??? Never knew Utah weather was so cold. Isn't it suppose to be spring already?

The mock up looks great. I like the two piece arches. Looks like you are on the right path.

It was almost 80 degrees today, the next few days will be in the 30's for a low. A little rough on the garden.

I will be meeting with the fire marshall tomorrow to get the rules.

Yes it is a barrel design.

Two things have been learned in the last few days:

1: Just because it was 72 two days ago does not mean that it will not snow last night.

2: Always check with the firemarshall first, our hole is 8 feet too close to the property line. Time to redig.

Looking at your layout pics, why not move the inner and outer arches closer by 1" and eliminate the metal?

Good suggestion, I will reposition the arches, less metal to potentially rust is better. I have enough firebrick to fill in around the flue with minimal ref mortar. I made two trips to the firebick pile to make sure I had enough.

The arches are also firebrick, $2.00 for each complete arch.

When the snow melts Gavin and I will dig the proper foundation hole.

Thanks

You can lay block in a day or two if you want.

Thank you very much for the care package, this weekend I will be having honey wheat bread as well as honey ON my bread. Salute!

Your Welcome, my pleasure. It is in the 50's again today. I was lucky to get the pad in. I thought it was going to rain, but it did not.

Does your door go past your chimney? butt against your inner arch? I am assuming that it does or else all the heat would go straight up and out.

It is "keyed". The inner part fits into the archway, the outer part is 1" larger all the way around. That is how I built both of my failed doors and will make door #3.

That is the insulating door, I haven't decided on the outer weather door, I may make it as attached shutters.
