Default Pompeii in Nanoose Bay!

Hi, fellow oven-lovers,
I just posted a brand new thread on our oven build under Brick Oven Photos and am wondering if it should have been posted here instead??
I want to make sure we share our experience since the forum has been invaluable to us - do I need to move it? If so how?!

UPDATE Nov 1, 2010: Continuing the thread here.....

Cheers,
Karen

Just leave it here. As a note, keep all your progress in one thread. It's a lot easier for people to follow your progress if you don't create multiple ones.

Enjoy the build!

I just ran across the first disconnect. You mentioned in the other thread about the brick count for a 42 inch. I bought 277 for mine. Granted, I tossed a lot of scrap (and bad cuts), but thats what it took.

Yes, Les, obviously the FB materials list needs updating! I'll have a firm count on ours in the next few days.

Thumbs up Re: Pompeii in Nanoose Bay!

Finished the dome today - yahoo!

More challenging than Dave predicted and our hats are tipped to all the non-masons who've managed this task! Smiley faces at clean-up today.
Next, the dome's exterior....

See our thread with more pics here:

Looks really nice. Seems like you had a much easier time making the dome than I did. I guess a few years experience helps.

Thanks, dsgreco, 'easier' being relative of course - the air was blue this morning!

It would seem to make more sense to continue detailing our build on this thread, rather than under Brick Oven Photos, so I will be posting our saga here as we go forward.

Here are a few pics of what has been done so far; the foundation, the floor, the dome and the arch. More pics and original commentary can be found at:

The Dome Exterior:
This weekend, Dave was able to get more of the high-heat mortar so using his grouting bag, he piped it into every joint around the firebrick. Then he plastered a layer over the whole dome, after covering it first with a coating of Wellbond (construction adhesive) for additional bonding benefit (an old masonry tip).

At the base of the dome, he placed 4” screws about 12” apart all the way around, in preparation for the insulation tomorrow. Rain was expected so he covered it with poly before continuing the next day.

The Insulation blanket:
Today, Dave cut and placed two layers of ceramic fiber blanket by Cerak (1” thick, 138 kg per m3) over the dome and then used a roll of strand wire (that we have for using with rebar), wrapping it around one screw and then up and over the dome, and repeating, to create a ‘web’ and hold the blanket in place.

After the insulation was attached, Dave cut and placed steel expanded lath (stucco wire), using the wire and screws to hold it all together. He says he could not have done it half as easily without the wire so was pleased that his idea worked.
