Default Low dome 42" in New Zealand

I'm building my second WFO.

The first one I built provided us with fantastic Neapolitan pizzas but when we sold the house I had to leave it behind

Then we rented for a while and then started to build our new house. The build was supposed to take 6 months and be nice and easy. In reality, its been 2 years now, still not finished but I''m finally able to start thinking about the outside of the house. Recently we got the patio poured and the pergola is up. So amongst the many other jobs, I've started the foundation for the pizza oven MKll a couple of months ago. Following are some pics of the build sofar.

Filling in the gaps between the entry door and the bricks.

Perlcrete to do the door transition.

OK. This is where things are at as of now:

Dome mortared and sand form removed.

Stainless steel cable around the dome attached.

Removed all the logs and most of the sand (there is still a bit to go as you can see in the last pic).

The last shot shows the inside but unfortunately no picture of the dome brickwork. I decided to cover the sand form with damp newspaper because I didn't want any sand sticking to the mortar (it might drop onto a pizza later at some stage). And the newspaper will just burn off when I start firing / curing the oven.

Now onto insulation and then curing..
