Thanks to many of you who have posted on Hearth insulation. I have a Mugnaini Medio 110 oven kit and the Mfg. calls for 6" of sand under a 3" concrete base under the hearth. They say that while the sand acts less as an insulator but more as a heat sink to develop thermal mass and keep the floor hotter longer. Although it does take 20 minutes longer to come to temperature. Any thoughts on this design vs perlite/vermiculite concrete mix?
