When I was inside the wife came out and started laughing at me. I felt like I was caving when I was a few kilos less than I am now.

The good news is that (touch wood) you will only have to do it once.

When I did my oven I did the outer arch and vent after I finished the dome so it was much easier to fit inside the oven to clean up the bricks without the outer arch stopping access.

That said, it was still difficult & uncomfortable!

It's a good looking build Doug.

I sent my daughter in, child labor laws be damned
Seriously, she was an adult at the time (22) and considerably smaller (OK, skinnier) than dear old dad.

there was no way in hell my shoulders were fitting through my door

Lucky I cleaned most of it up while there was still a hole.

Doug, Your pictures freak me out just looking at them - I am claustrophobic. That's why I went the route I did, no mortar. There was no way I was going to crawl into the hole.

I fit although there wasn't much room for a table and chairs,

If one doesn't have a WFO large enough to get into, how does one make repairs? Or is such a WFO a tear down and rebuild should repairs become necessary?

Wiley

As a spelunker who has over the years squeezed through a few cave "mouse holes" that were too tight to get through without exhaling, I know the feeling well, and it is something not easily accepted by one's brain. Because of this, I consider the act of climbing into one's oven to clean it the same as being inserted into a chamber (which I've done also) to have an MRI: piece of cake. At least if I ever got stuck cleaning my oven and there's still a hole on top my wife could hand me a cold one!
