Let the games begin.....

After determining a corner build for the Pompeii is the best option for me I looked on pp. 17-18 of the Pompeii Oven Instructions regarding the foundation and am still a tad confused. None seem to equate to a 36" or 42" Pompeii oven that I read so much about.

If I subtract 9" from the exterior dimensions I come up with interior oven sizes of 26.5", 31.0", 34.5", and 40", respectively. I understand that the 36" oven isn't exactly 36" - more like 35.6" (or something like that, but not 34.5"). Or am I wrong?

Egalecki built a 36" on a 64"x64" corner build, but there doesn't seem to be much room left for an enclosure should I go that way.

I have enough room to build a foundation of 74" on the long sides and 51" on the short sides (plus the 45 degree foundation angle in front). That should be enough for a 36" Pompeii, but what about a 42"?

I tried laying it out on a grid as suggested, but there wasn't enough room for a 78" depth.

I don't see enough discussion (or I'm dizzy from all the reading) on the subject so I need some help.

Thanks.
