Default Outdoor beehive oven with fireplace

Hi everyone, I just joined FB and wanted to share my build. Wish i had joined before i started the project to get some tips and ideas. And should of taken more pics of construction of the oven but will on the next one.
The construction took place durning the winter months, so i tarped and heated the work area. It wasn't fun on the cold windy days but at least i had work.

Hi Stonewall,

That one towering oven, really like the walk in wood storage, I didn't see any hearth insulation, do you have any above the oven?

Thanks laurentius, Yes i did put a 4'' layer of vermiculite/portland mix under the oven. Is that enough under the oven? Also have lots of insulation above oven. fb blanket, loose vermiculite, then roxul on top of that to completely fill area on top.

That is quite the masonry structure! What did you do for the footing?

I usually do the footings but on this one the homeowner did it before i started. He dug it out and poured it thick. but its not down below frost level. It extends past on all sides.
Homeowner was going to build oven himself but he figured he wouldn't have the time to put into it, he is a great general contractor and carpenter. As you can see from his work on the roof part.

Stonewall, that wooden deck frighten me! Do you have kids, do you have a screen for that fireplace and a door for your oven? Have your insurance agent, seen it yet?

I built the oven for a customer, he is going to make the door for the oven. not sure on the screen but i see your point. will have to put screen on when not watching the fire or something covering the wood deck.

Hi Stonewall,

Since you build that for some one else, it might be a good idea to give him a written warning and advise him on getting a screen and door and cautionary notes, to CYA. By all means, keep a copy for yourself.
