  • Progress made on Casa2g 90

    Been a pretty productive weekend so far we were able knock out so far:
    • Weep holes drilled
    • Floor insulation placed and cut
    • Floor placed and leveled
    • Dome pieces set and connected.
    Next we plan to put 4 inches of ceramic fiber blanket and hold on on with chicken wire, attach the oven chimney, and start on the framing for the enclosure (yes, we decided that enclosing it would be best, being in a wet and humid area of the US).

    Couple questions going forward:
    1. Is 4 inches of ceramic fiber blanket overkill for 2 inch think cast walls?
    2. We plan to use 3 5/8th metal studs and tracks for build the frame for the enclosure. What are people using on the outside? Durock? Hardie backer board?

    No question that a prefab unit is fast to install. Depends on your cooking style, do you want to have a pizza party then maybe cook something the next day or do you want multiday cooking. Also and option install 2" of ceramic blanket then to fill the structure with dry perlite.

      We hope to be able to do multi-day cooking, with maybe a lite firing if needed. I have 4" inches of ceramic fiber blanket and 16 cubic feet of Perlite available to use. I can't find it, but I thought I read that after so many inches of blanket it begins to be a waste of money.

        I liked the wonder board product i did use Duroc for everything but needed 1 piece and the store I went to only sold wonderboard I think it cut better and screwed on better.

          Thank you both! I'll look into the wonderboard, does seem a bit lighter as well. On to cutting the metal framing...

              I used 18g structural steel studs. Reasonably priced and very strong

                You can order them from Menards but there is a minimum of 100 linear ft. I went to a building supply house and was pennys more expensive but I didn't need to buy more than I needed.

                  Chach , do you think 25 gauge would work? I plan to connect the durock to it and then finish with tile.

                    If it was just to support tile on a wall no roof then i'd say yes. That particular gauge of stud is not designed or recommended for load bearing construction like supporting a roof on top of those walls. 25 gauge is made for non load bearing interior construction walls. It's not what your hanging on the wall it's what the wall is holding up.

                      They seem to be extremely small, and after some reading, it seems that small cracks are somewhat normal. I wanted to throw it by the pros though to get a second opinion.

                        Hi Mikee,

                        I moved your new topic on "small cracks day 3 curing" back to one of your other threads. It helps to have a little background information, gives continuity to your build and will help folks form answers to your questions.

                          Yesterday was the third curing day as mentioned, and we got the oven up around 350-400 degrees. When I checked the oven this morning after having the door closed overnight, I was still seeing high temperatures around 200-275. Looks to be ok for now?
