I am miffed. I just watched one of those "do it yourself" shows on television where a team of people did an entire backyard makeover for a woman, including a pizza oven. IN THREE DAYS!!!! I just want to give everyone considering building a wood-fired oven the gift of TIME and PATIENCE in building your oven. Don't be suckered in by television shows. It was a beautiful oven, but they built it on a sand and minus foundation, concrete blocks, some kind of sand hearth, and didn't let any of the mortar cure before putting in the oven and applying stone to the outside. It seemed a shame to hurry such a project. (I watched the whole show to see if they were going to fire it up, but they didn't) Anyway, I think 3-4 months is a very reasonable expectation to complete an oven...some may go faster and some slower.
