This is all Greek to me, very interesting! I have some questions!
Why on the bottom structure are there 2 sides?
Is it for storing wood?
Is there going to be a chimney or vent?

I'll be using a domed fiberglass form for the next few rows to prevent this.
I also botched the section where the ring crosses over the entry arch for the first time.
I didn't build it up enough, and turned my ring into a teardrop.
Of course I didn't notice until after the bricks had set up so it took some time to fix.
I had to build up and shape up the mortar in that spot to get the next row back in a ring.

You can see the dip here. The brick that is in the tool, and the one to the right of it



Back to a ring



You can see here how steep the sides are getting.





Where I'm at currently



Nice, Dom. As for your issues with the dome, Filippo Brunelleschi had the same one when he built the dome for the Florence Cathedral. But he solved that in the mid-15th Century, so you have no excuse.

Yes, it's for wood storage.
The bottom is 7 feet long. I segmented it and left it open on both ends so I wouldn't have to crawl in to get at the wood stored in the back.

I have to lay another arch at the front, and install the chimney.
That's the plan for today.

Forgive a stupid question (or four):

So the wood fire and the cooking food both go in the dome?

If so, I assume that it takes a bit for the oven floor to get hot?

How much wood will it take to get the oven hot?

How long do you think it will take to get it hot?

Yes. After the oven comes to temp, I'll move the fire to the back of the oven for cooking, and over to the side when doing pizza.

If so, I assume that it takes a bit for the oven floor to get hot?

Yes

How much wood will it take to get the oven hot?

Roughly 90 pounds

How long do you think it will take to get it hot?

3+ hours. It should take over 3 days for the oven to cool down
Obviously this is all based on what I've read. No real world experience..... Yet

I thought that would have been the trick to get Adam to crawl in

Busy weekend here.
I got a lot of work done.
Crawling into the oven to clean and point the joints took way longer than I expected Thursday, so I wasn't able to actually build until Friday evening after work.

Friday night I put up the vent arch



Saturday I put up the flue gallery and covered the dome with the remaining mortar mix.



And made sure the door fit



Sunday I added two inches of ceramic fiber blanket for insulation, lashed it all down with chicken wire, and put on a waterproofing flashing
I also installed a thermowell through the brickwork so I can monitor oven temps when the door isn't in.



Thermowell is more visible here



All that's left to finish the oven is to put on a perlite shell over the blanket.
However, I need to get the granite for the stand cut before I can do this, so I can bring the shell over the granite and eliminate the seam.
Hopefully he doesn't take too long.
