    • We officially closed the sale on our house today and the new owners took possession. I got the chance to meet them and they were very nice and seemed very excited to try the oven out. That makes me very happy to know that the house and oven went to someone that will love it the way we did. I referred them here to the forum and offered to help teach the how to use the oven. I wish them all the best and many years of entertaining and enjoying with the home and oven. I put lots love and pride in to the house and it was hard to walk away. I can't wait to see what they come up with in the oven. All the best to them.

But it shall pass and then i will start in on the projects i want to at home.

          • It is in times like these that i truly miss my oven. If i was to be stuck at home for weeks at a time at least I could have spent a day here and there making pizza. I hope i can get around to making another some time soon. I miss spending the day making dough preparing the sauce and toppings, and tending the fire. It is a fun way to spend the day.

            • Yes I agree I haven't had my oven that long but I would not want to be without one since I experienced using one. It is fun and relaxing and I enjoy making pizza for friends and family. I'm sure you will get on the oven build again very soon. You should at least start the base its not that costly and then at least your ready to build a brick oven on top or buy a cast oven. I know though if you build the base you won't stop lol. You could try and cast one yourself using castable concrete. I found a company by me that sold castable for a descent price. I actually was thinking of trying to cast one just to see if I could make one. I would give it to a friend of mine if I did. Who knows once I'm done with this one maybe I will do it.

                That is what I am planning to do. I think I saw that on your build. It is hard to see in the picture but I did leave a gap but I am planning to put the cardboard in when I do the final product. Thanks for the advice and help.

                Just wondering what the gaps is for? Thanks, Davy

                • Davy, I'm assuming you're asking about posts 37-39 on this thread. The cardboard shim goes in the gap between the cooking floor brick outer perimeter and the dome base bricks. When the cooking floor is heated during firing, it does expand a little. The gap allows for that expansion. The cardboard burns out right away during the curing fires and is not large enough to be a problem (no pizza will drop into the gap ). The gap normally does fill up with ash over time and is never a problem. Hope that helps your understanding...also in the future if you refer to a post that is early in a thread, add the post number(s) so others can easily find the context of your question.

                  • Yes i used cardboard as a spacer around the edge for a expansion joint. I also used 2 layers of cardboard for a spacer for my heat break between the dome and flu arch. I hope that helps.
