Default Some specs on my oven

I am in the process of finishing up my oven and thought you might like some details about the build process and materials used.

36 inch interior diameter oven
19 inch dome height
5 foot by 6 foot base
10 inch by 48 inch foundation dug by hand for the base
3 cubic yards of concrete, delivered, for the base weighing approximately 12,000 pounds.
57 cement blocks for the base at 30 pounds each, 1710 pounds.
7 inch concrete slab on cement board, 24 80 pound bags of cement mixed by hand, 1920 pounds
200 fire bricks at 8 pounds each, 1600 pounds
4 50 pound bags of Heat Stop 2 mortar, 200 pounds
16 cubic feet of vermiculite
2 94 pound bags of cement, 188 pounds

No stats on the facade yet. Lots of comments on building a bomb proof dog house. Total weight is about 18,000 pounds. Lots of physical work, lots of pride in doing almost all of it by myself.
