I speak for myself, but I think there are many builders here and some fb oven owners.

Maybe a poll is in order. I think you will find it pretty diverse in here as far as what people do or don't do. What I think we ll agree on though is that cooking with wood and fire are awesome.

My back yard is 70% concrete and 30% garden and i was originally planning to build my oven right on top of the cement but after seeing the weight of these ovens i dont know if i am going to have to build a proper reinforced slab in the garden area just to be safe , I know there is no rebar in the cemented area only wire

What is your plan for the oven? What size? Finishes?

Also I dont plan on going with the round design I like the half barrel design for lack of a better word. I feel there is more room yes, no?

There are some options out there, If you determine that your concrete area will not handle the weight. You might want to look into a concrete wet saw rental in your area. The saw in my quick search link is a small one. There are larger saws available with more umph .

Shop around for the best deal .

Another slab laid over your existing concrete should suffice as it will spread the load cutting and removing concrete is a pain..How big/heavy an oven are you planning?

David,
You may be right on this. I would do the same as you suggest in my subtropical climate. But, this oven is in an area of "frost heave". Not my area of expertise. Maybe some one from the arctic will chime in .
