              I like the look of it. Why the slot in the chimney?

                You will still lose masses of heat through the ovens contact with the concrete slab so you are wasting your time with the floor insulation.

                  I know you will lose heat unfortunately i was not aware that needed insulation before i started reading the forum, i guess i will still do it as it is, thanks anyway the chimney will have a trap to close it whenever i want will not have that opening when its finished

                    It is unfortunate that you found us too late. Adding the insulation under the floor will definitely help. The good news is that firebrick isn't that great of a conductor of heat. Hopefully the loss from dome to slab will be minimal.

                      Hello, my oven is almost finished, and the question is if this going to work, I am not sure yet, but started curing process last week, yesterday I fire it up a little bit longer, aprox 35mins not that much wood, and it god pretty hot that was yesterday at around 10 am, this morning still feels warm/hot, I am surprised thats almost 24hrs and without a door, I didn't pushed to the limit yet and still got pretty hot, can't tell the exact temps just ordered a Laser thermometer, will keep posted, here are some pics shows when starting the fire, still have some work to do , but is looking good.
