Default Getting to it - my first Brick Oven

I'm living in Canmore Alberta and am working on my first brick oven. I had a clay oven when I lived in Golden, BC and it didn't withstand the winters too well. It wasn't on a proper foundation and didn't have much of a roof. But it was fun to cook in and I miss having one. So, I'm getting started here with something more permanent.

I posted some photos at:

Its loosely based on the design from the "Bread Builders."

Nice looking work RobertoGman. I'm sure this oven will serve you much longer than the clay one. I'll keep checking back for more pics.

Hey Rob,

So I'm not quite as far as yourself (as the pictures denote, I'm only on the platform at the mo)... But I must say that I am impressed with your photos and idea to build a more square-ish oven... I was considering the round style but am concerned only becuase my level of masonary work is less, than I would imagine, than anyone's here --- then I look at these photos and, with the level of detail enclosed in the pictures, hope to be able t produce something even remotely similar...Anyways, good job and one question I had to ask... How did you morter in the bricks on the floor there? Did you place them as the insulating cement set or what was the deal?
