Default Greg's Pompeii 42" - San Diego

After hours of reading, studying and the occasional newbie question, I am ready to begin. Though actually I kinda cheated. When I designed my backyard landscape, I had the contractors build my stand. I know, I know, I should have done it myself, but the backyard was a huge project and too much for one man. I did my last backyard and lost a year of weekends. So while most of these threads start with a foundation, mine will start with the stand.

First step, site prep. A little spouse negotiation included getting the rest of the backyard done first. Now I have the problem of trying to keep from trashing everything around the worksite; thus the plywood on the ground. Made a small start with framing out the Insulating hearth.

That looks great. If I could I would do exactly what you did there. I look forward to watching your build.

Greg, Great start! I love your patio cover/deck. The stone arches and cement railing are amazing. Did you add that to the house? Looking forward to following your build. Maybe in person.

Mark

pretty pretty pretty! Our house has a dinky (minimum code requirement 10x10) covered patio, and I'd love to do something like what you have. Great setting for your oven!

Love the initial work and stand. That will be a nice area.

Hi Greg, there is no such thing as cheating on the build. Having the stand done for you means you get more time to think and fine tune every other aspect of the oven construction. I love the stone arches on the stand. I may have to steal your idea . Good luck, Dino

acbova: Thanks.
exceloven: 2yrs ago it was all dirt, see attached. Invitation is always open for free labor and expertise .
Modtyrth: 10x10 sounds like enough room for a Jacuzzi/WFO combo.
Ken: Thanks
Dino: Been lurking on your thread for months. Your photos and detailed explanations have been great. Keep it up.

You'd think that 10x10 is a reasonable size--until you realize that it's right in front of the french doors leading into the back yard, which are about 9 feet wide. If I put anything out there, I completely block access to the backyard, unfortunately. We built our outdoor kitchen area adjacent to it, and plan on putting up curtains and treating it as kind of an outdoor foyer until we can rip it down and do something more grand like yours. Someday. Once the porch isn't completely covered with tools and bags of masonry materials. ;-)

The stone work looks fantastic; it looks like a great area for entertaining. The WFO should really set off your back yard now. Looking forward to seeing the finished oven.
