Hi Polo,

What type of insulation did you use under the hearth or floor? High heat mortar is not insulation, I hope you know that.

Polo - the blanket goes on the outside of your dome (firebrick) for insulation

No - the mortar is used for construction only (brick glue)

You add the cement (stucco) over the blanket to cover the dome.

Start a new thread called Polo's build - post ALL your questions there and we can walk you through this.

This is wrong. You need insulation under the firebrick. Also, do not mortar the floor - let it "float". Is it to late to re-do the floor?

I built my shape from rebar and chicken wire and filled the void with portland/vermiculite. I believe some have wrapped the blanket with just chicken wire and applied the stucco to that. Anyone that went that route, please jump in here.

I don't know if it's available in San Diego. Where are you located in Mexico? Also, you will be glad that you re-worked the floor. These things are amazing if insulated properly.

I am in TJ Mexico right accross the San Diego Border, but I go to SD twice a week, so no problem, I guess I will order from Forno Bravo the Insulation material, I already have a couple of guys taking out the bricks, and I also had extra Fire Bricks so no problem there, thanks so much for your advise, hopefully this oven will turn out to be great, Saturday I will take the time to post pictures in a new thread and let you know with the progress of the WFO.
