    To make it functional you need lots of insulation, thats around $200 gone already.

            I've been a craigslist junkie for the past several months getting all of my cinderblocks and regular bricks for free and all of my firebricks for $.50/each. The thing is, it's been TONS of work having to remove old mortar from these used items. I'm getting some of my refractory mortar for free from leftovers from a neighbor's job and got an AWESOME deal for a brand new 36" Dura-Vent chimney pipe for $50....................and I'm still gonna be pushing $800 for my oven. Most people would probably think that's pretty cheap. If you aren't prepared to spend this you should start looking at a cob oven.

            PS - The cob oven was my original plan until I found this website. Then I realized that even though it would cost less than $100, I'd have to do practically the same amount of work and have my oven fall apart in a couple years. Thanks for breaking the bank Forno Bravo!

              Yea, you're really lucky to get them so cheap
              Here in NJ, there's NO one to buy them from.

                  Hi All,

                  Yep, Craigslist is very useful for finding materials. Something to watch for is that very few sellers know fire brick from beach sand. I answered several ads for "fire brick" that was nothing more than concrete pavers or regular clay building brick. The sellers said they were left over from building a fireplace "so they must be fire bricks....aren't they" ? LOL

                  Be careful and persistent, eventually your search will pay off with a nice find.

                  Cheers,
                  Bob

                      Hello after doing the typical routine with home owners association and buliding inspector we are ready to start the Casa cg90 project. We are on the Washington coast and plan to build a water tight stucture covering the oven. Can we cure the oven inside the structure, we might have a problem finding a long dry window?

                        You will have to do the best you can. Call fornobravo for clarification (I'm assuming you mean a Casa 2g90 oven), I'm sure they have the experience you need.

                        Good Luck

                        If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.

                        I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

                          I must have missled everyone, I am building a Casa 2G 90 not a Pompeii Oven. We are really excited the oven just arrived only one week from the order, way to go Forno Bravo. We will enclose the oven in a water proof structure. After I learn how to post pics of our build out I will get them on right away.

                              Jumping into the mix this week with my foundation. I was originally leaning toward a barrel oven since it looked simpler to build the dome. After countless hours reading tons of posts and viewing pics, i am again convinced to build a Pompeii oven. Mine is slated to be 42".

                              Thank you all forum members and especially the posts in the newbie section. You have given me the motivation and confidence to proceed.

                              I will start posting as soon as i get underway and look forward to many great posts.

                              If anyone is on Long Island or NY metro area I would love to hear about your experience.

                              Thanks,
                              Giuseppe
