Default Premio Oven Build

I've uploaded some pictures of a Premio 100 build. This is the older version which is no longer sold as far as I can tell. Someone had this and it had sat around a few years. I picked it up and it too sat for more than a year. We finally got a design, found a mason, and began the build this Fall.

The overall construction is concrete block with flagstone strip exterior. Lots of rebar and angle iron. Likely a complete overkill. We have a prep area on one side and a stone farm sink on the other. The island will have stainless inserts from Costco. These are manufactured by Bull and seem quite durable and are reasonably priced.

We went with 2" thick flagstone for the counter tops and 1" thick for the roof. The strip stone is about 3" to 4" thick and varies in height.

We have a 6" base for the oven and FB insulated board on top of that where the oven based was placed.

The base for the oven has two wood storage areas. We have one in front and one in back which will have a door made from reclaimed lumber (from an old barn). Each section is about 24" deep.

The foundation is about 12" deep. We plan on having a flagstone patio around the whole oven island, so we didn't extend it much beyond the base. There's water from the garage to the island. We used a french drain for the sink into a small cistern.

I will post more pictures as it nears completion. The templates for the countertop are at the flagstone supplier and we'll likely finish next week.

We're going to build a house style with a flagstone roof and stacked stone chimney. That work starts on Monday. I will post pictures as we progress.

More pictures of the build. You can see the 18"x30" stone sink, the house style structure over the dome, and the 2" thick flagstone countertop. Also we added the bow front landing of stone. The roof will be thinner (about 1") flagstone pieces.

Hi Fred,

Thank you for posting these pictures and sharing a bit of the construction on your oven. It looks like it is going to be a great outdoor area. We look forward to seeing the finished product.

Happy Building,
Forno Bravo

Additional pictures of the build. You can see the detail on the arch which follows the same contour of the Premio door arch. I'm sure people are looking at our cinder blocks and other pieces we used (very low tech) but hey it works. We also got the custom-cut piece of stone for the side with farm sink. I'm still thinking about what to do about the edges near the sink. I could round them or add a little triangle piece to fill in ... still thinking.

So far I like what I'm seeing. I had to run and get another ton of stone today. Thank goodness I'm only 15 minutes from a quarry that supplies the stuff.

So, here's more progress on what I'm now calling the pizza temple. Because it's gone from an oven into a massive stone structure. I even had to shoo away a couple of druids.

Anyway ... I really like the way the entry and the arch turned out. We did both an internal and external arch. Door opens up a full 90 degrees. Perhaps we should have made it go a tad more, but that's how it is.

The next step is the roof. I'm going to measure and get some pieces of 1 to 1.5 inch flagstone cut. As issue is the weight. It's going to be like lifting a pool table onto the roof. I may break it into 2 for each side with a seam running vertical.

This had been quite the journey ... I should be curing the oven next week. Pizza to follow.
