We started this project (concrete oasis patio) in oct. The patio is 888 sq. ft big and is raised out of the ground 32 inches . the walls are built using ICF forms and concrete on full spread footers below the frost line. We will stamp the floor and walls on the patio in concrete. Now the brick oven- we built a raised area (42 inches off finished patio height) to start the oven . We then did our insulation coat on top of this new pad. We laid the floor in fire mortar in a running bond, then stood the first course up and parcged. Came back the next day and made a sand some on the floor to run our dome on to. We ran the dome up and parged with a inch of fire mortar. We added 4 inches of vermiculite and concrete mix to insulate and wrapped it with waterproof cement. We are going to build an overstructure out of block around this and stucco and add some type of roman decoration to finish so stay tuned, it may take awhile as it is getting cold here in the north so we will have to pick our days
No announcement yet.
