    Helps LOADS mate!
    It really helps to visualize the idea and minimize what I was going to do! I had it in my head to build quite a buttress but the work you did is tight, focussed and apparently sufficient to the task.
    I will move forward more comfortably with the idea of buttressing now.

    Really appreciate your reply and photos, Mark!
    Very kind of you!

        Hey Mark! Great build, hope you’re enjoying it during lockdown! I’m down in the South Island planning out a build. I’m trying to decide whether to build a roof or enclosure around the oven. I see you’ve just used waterproof mortar. Would you do it differently a second time? And have you put in a vent for the insulation? I much prefer the look of ovens without a roof or enclosure (and a lot easier/cheaper!) but worry moisture will eventually get in. Cheers!

          Hi Dave

          Only just saw your post, sorry! Lockdown has been fine as we have pizza! LOL
          I like it just the way it is, but a roof will obviously be better for waterproofing. As it is, I think I'll paint the outside as some moisture still gets through the plaster. For the moment, I've found it best to cover the oven throughout winter with some tarps as it's only prolonged rain that is a problem. And boy, has it been wet of late!

          Good luck with your project. Shout out if you have any questions.

          Kind regards,
          Mark
