    "Money has lost all meaning". I'm glad I didn't have a mouth full of my favorite beverage when I read that
    It didn't take me long to ditch the cost spread sheet I was keeping, and that is saying something as I really like to track stuff. The increasing costs and trying to keep track of the receipts from the never ending runs to the hardware store made me decide that cost really didn't matter and it was a quality of life endeavor to build an oven.

      Totally agree lol. There is a point when you just say forget it and just get what's needed...I was like why am I trying to save a few hundred dollars? It's a small price to save in the grand scheme of things. Guess I'll fill the enclosure with perlite. LOL.

        I love the care and effort you have put into this. What were you planning for the chimney?

          Thanks very much.
          Have just started working on the outer arch and flu. Chimney will be a 8" duratech stovepipe, mountplate and cap.
          Flu will be a 'serpentine' design I saw in JRPizza 's build.
          There is a bit of structural instability in the design but it's not holding a lot of weight. I have an idea on how I can 'lock' the inward leaning 'inverse arch' section of the flu to the inner and outer arches of the flu gallery.
          We'll see how that goes.

            Mongo, if you can improve on the design please document so others can follow and learn. The way I built my vent has a good portion of the downward load carried by the front and rear vent arches, and the serpentine part of the vent is mostly in compression, but that design has been criticized for lack of interlocking bricks.
            I have studied many of the builds on this forum going back to the early days, and the ovens have evolved as clever folks tweak the design. Just look at the basic oven shown in the FB plans and contrast that to some of the more recent builds. Looking forward to seeing what modifications you come up with!

              Was not originally going to do a heat break but talked myself into it.
              Ceramic fiber braid, 1/4 inch.Flu gallery arch will have minimal direct contact with the inner arch.The break between the floor bricks and the landing occurs beyond the inner arch, on the outside of the door which I'm not crazy about.

                I thought this might be effective. At least for a heat break that was essentially an after thought.
                I moved the ceramic fiber braid from between the floor bricks and the landing to the floor bricks directly under the inner arch. The floor bricks now only directly contact the landing bricks along a 1/2 inch strip rather than the full 2 1/2 inch. That should reduce the heat loss by conduction.
                Not perfect but better than nothing.

                      Last bit of work before this week long rain delay.
                      My arch forms are more "guidelines" than actual rules.

                        My gift to my neighbors this fine Sunday morning is to not run my tile saw until noon. I've got 20 minutes for an update.
                        Put in about a 14 hour day yesterday.
                        I used the 'serpentine' flu design I saw in JRPizza 's build with a small mod to hopefully address the structural issues. My wife calls it the "Schwa".

                        Yes I bricked the flu form in. I have a plan.

                            Whilst the form works well for efficient smoke extraction, the structural instability of lining up all those vertical joints rather than tying them in, concerns me. How did you manage to overcome this issue?

                              I didn't execute it very well but these are the four flu bricks that I laid.
                              The first is 7 inches and fits solely between the rear and front arch.
                              The next 3 bricks protrude above the two arches and are a full nine inches and cut/notched (wings) so they protrude 1 inch over each arch.

                              Maybe not so much "tied in" but they are transferring their weight and the bricks I lay on top of them onto the inner and outer arch.
                              Would have loved for the joint between the wings and the arches to be tighter.

                                Outer arch and flue are set.
