Smile BenjaMia Bakehouse Project

Tomorrow the next phase begins...the structural hearth gets poured!

I've moved from Getting Started ( http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f6/b...oven-4157.html ) since this has become an outdoor kitchen project with an unusual build having the oven and bakehouse together.

The building is in major renovation and the oven is now shaping up too!

Eventually it's going to be surrounded by a patio area too.

Jim

Woah, you're going to have another oven done before I even get around to pouring my foundation! Very impressive. I can't wait to see how the project takes shape.

Eccellente Jim,

It's going to look great. But I think your hearth seems a little low to the ground. :-)

Yeah James, and the floor is a little rough too!

Default Island hearth

I made a 1x6 frame for the insulating hearth......perlcrete and insulating firebrick filler.

soon the real fun begins!

Jim, I think your hearth looks a little crooked. It is support to be horizontal, not vertical. :-)

Looking good.

I love it! That is going to be one big oven! Also, that is some of the smoothest perlcrete I have ever seen...are you sure you added the perlite?

Good eye Drake, the perlcrete photos are next. (That was the structural finale)

Default Insulating Hearth

I decided to use a layer of the insulating firebrick with perlcrete over it.
