  • Getting ready to build an oven

    I am getting ready to build an oven in a backyard terrace, so I will
    not be building a block base, the 1st concrete slab will be directly
    on the ground then I will be adding the thermo layer slab on top of
    it, then the cooking floor. The rest of the oven will be like any
    other. I have included my parts list below and want to insure I have
    not gone to overkill mode with materials. I chose the arch fire
    bricks for ease of setting though most plans I have seen use the
    straight fire brick. By using the arch brick I will get a 71/2" rise
    in 3'3" which seems to be the goal of all the plans. Let me know what
    you think as this is my first attempt.
