Default Knackers modular oven & Bali hut

Hi all,
well I went through the arduous task of trying to find where I could get all the bits & pieces to build my pompeii oven.......................................Then I found out that I was holding xmas this year!!!! Good lord!!!

the weeks need to be 10 days long & the days need to be 37 hours in total with no night time.

So..........out with the pompei & in with the bought one . I desperatly wanted to build my own, however, I work all day & work after work & on weekends around the house & it just wasnt looking good for time as I wanted to build this Bali hut around the pool.

So here is what I am building.. A 3.6 mtr X 5.2 mtr hip roofed Bali hut, with a corner oven built in.... I was always going to have just the arched hole in a wall & in the next group of photos it will show them.

I used Formblocks for the main wall constructon. They were great. They are located in Australia, New Zealand & U.S.A but only in Florida.....Formblock® by Global Building Systems

Hey Knackers!

It's looking good! Your oven will be a great addition to your back yard, Particularly if you get it done on time!

Good luck with your build,

JED

Thanks Jed,
I am a ittle bit further along with the build at the moment. Just realised that I could get the pics off my phone & I could post them while I should be working.
I am so excited about this build. My wife wanted to have an open fire.....but we live in the tropics albeit near the start of the tropics but never the less it only gets cold for a couple of weeks a year. So I said NO I am not going to build a fireplace for a couple of fires a year.

Then I saw a WFO on the TV...........

So I made an excuse to build a new entertainment area around this oven & up by the pool.

Mike

Looks great Knackers! Going to be gorgeous by the pool I am looking forward to seeing the roof construction.

Did you sink the roof support posts into the ground, or attach them to the slab, or what? (and how, of course )

I was lucky enough to have a concrete slab around the pool. So I chemset the starter bars into it. The posts are sitting 8 inches or 200mm (one block high) above the ground & I drilled a bit of y12 (1/2 inch reo) through the bottom of the post so that it would attach itself to the corefill & corefilled all of the blocks, including around the post. So esentually the peirs that are surrounding the posts near the pool are connected to the concrete slab by starter bars and concrete.

anyway. the wall is at the correct height now. I just have to corefill some more... only 1m3 left.

B4 that is make sure I have the conduit for the deck lights & the ones that I have to light up the roof.

I will hopefully be pitching the roof this weekend. Then after work next week I will be doing the thatching & the rendering (stucco for the yanks) and last but not least the decking.


Busy times ahead.

Just wish it would stop raining

Gorgeous place - love the tropical plants!

I know what you mean about the rain. We had a few warmer days and nights here - perfect for finishing my topcoat for stucco - but it rained every day!

now looks like the temps are at freezing or below for the next 10 days. I'm never going to finish!!!

I'm finding I never have enough conduit to support my plans - run extra while you're at it!!! Speakers - LED lighting - who knows what is in your future!!

The house is a work in progress...... Lots of things to fix from the guy we bought it off.... He used to think that he was kind of handy.......I would like to get my hands on the bastard sometimes

Anyway I will take some more pics of the rest of the place as I go.... I love it. we are in the middle of suburbia, however you dont tend to notice anyone else living around you.

Yeah Christo..........you cant have enough conduit!

speaking of the previous owner, he built the pots around the pool & directly in front of the pots in the pool are the pool lights........................................Now you would think that he would have put the wires in conduit b4 he built the concrete & concrete block ponds above where the lights are, that house the pots now wouldnt ya? oh no......... dead short in both lights!..... cant pull the wires out because there is 2 ton of concrete stucture on top & no conduit.... lmao

so I dont want to knock down that to fix the pool lights so we dont have pool lights
