Looking Great!
Love the stone "eave" and keystone!

From the prev pics of the flue, it should breathe very well.

Some more work done from the other day.

Im really loving these bricks. Minus the fact that all the bricks are different sizes. Wouldn't be surprised if they were hand made. For the installation of the brick we cut them in half, basically doubling the use of these bricks, so we installed them with thinset, we will go back and fill the gaps with mortar.







Beautiful sky from last night



Removed the entry/arch form, need to fill in the gaps with fine sand.

Really starting to come together.
Man, the reclaimed brick looks awesome!
Have you started curing the oven at all yet?

Thank you.. No i have not started curing, the form just came off 2 days ago so i will start asap. Its been air drying for a month now, at least the bottom half of the home. The top rows have been drying for 2 weeks now. Im good with that as the longer it dries the better. Im thinking of putting a propane torch in there for the first few days. Then use charcoal briquettes as the heat is low and stable. After that ill amp up the heat.

Time is your friend here...
I am not sure of the merit, I have read that propane gives off moisture when burned.
I know our ice fishing shacks get pretty humid when we heat them (perhaps from temp variance).
Just some thing to check into?
There is a LOT of moisture already in it.

Technically, the combustion process itself creates water as a byproduct. I'm not sure if different fuels give more or less water though. Maybe propane produces more? But this is why water comes out of automotive tailpipes because a fuel is being burned.

Ice fishing? well yes if your heating up a cold and icy environment it will develop moisture, no? Its pretty dry up here so im not worried about that. I will have to check the moisture level with my moisture meter. I will document moisture levels.

Since it is pretty dry out here in SoCal I wouldn't put too much emphasis on the curing process. I built my oven during spring time and lit progressively larger fires (maybe half a dozen or so) before I lit the big one. No cracks.

What a nice build! I absolutely love the workspace you've built around it, I'm taking notes here. I bet you can almost taste that first pizza.
