Default The build has begun!

This is my first attempt at building anything like this. I downloaded the plans for a 42" oven off the Forno Bravo web site and have been researching as much as possible to answer any of my questions. The forum has been a great source of reference. I will try to attach a photo of the foundation that was just poured the other day. The first of many.

Thanks, my wife bought a light so I can work in the evening. I'm really motivated to work on the oven since I've been planning this for over a year.

I've started building the block stand. It will be dry stacked with the cells filled in with concrete. Then it will be on to the hearth.

Good call with gluing the starter bars in rather than trying to pre set them which never works.

I wish I would have dry stacked my block and filled them in. Would have made things alot easier. Good call on that. Looking forward to following your build.

Here I have filled the cells with concrete and now I'm starting to make the form for the hearth.
