Ambrogi emailed me back.

"Dear David,
You don’t have to insulate the bottom of the oven. Just all the external surface/structure and the top.
 
Best regards,"

Now I gotta find some insulating blankets.

Now I gotta find some insulating blankets.

The oven wall thickness at the floor level seems to be 50mm according to the diagrams.  But aside from that I wonder what's used as fill material between the rest of the dome and the SS enclosure.  I have to imagine there's got to be some kind of insulation in there...
It even states "well finished oven, ready to be used..."

Well I got insulation blankets, they should be in tomorrow.

Do you guys burn the wood with the bark on or off. I have seen videos of some people taking the bark off(Anthony Mangieri being one person I can think of off the top of my head) and then I have seen people use the wood with the bark. What do you guys do, does it make a difference? I might make pizza on Saturday before my uncle starts the brick work on Monday.

If the wood is dry and has been stored protected from the elements, I would leave the bark on. Otherwise, there could be a good deal of moisture trapped between the bark and the wood, which might cause the wood to burn inefficiently.

Brickstone, I agree with Norma...that looks like an awesome oven/set-up.
I'm sure I am not the one who is itching to see the pizzas you cook in that beauty!
Hurry up and get it finished!!  :-D

BSO, I love the brick you've chosen.  That's a pretty smokin' looking oven.   8)

Thanks a lot. We were orignally going to get a darker gray color(the color of the arch)but they didn't have enough so I got these ones. I think they look pretty good as well.

BrickStoneOven.......very nice brick work you got going there.  Are you planning on keeping the circular profile of the oven?

What do you guys have done for doors? I bought extra blanket just in case so I have a lot left overto make a door with. I was thinking of sandwiching 3-4" of insulation inbetween two piece of SS, would that work? I'm going to have a wooden door made so I'll put that on the back side. I have anothe idea but I'll wait to see what you guys say, I wanna be able to keep as much heat inside as possible.

I don't blame them for not wanting to go the circular route.  Circular stands, hearths, and enclosures just take much longer to form and build as I found out with my current oven build.
As for my door, I might just start out with a thick solid wooden door, soaked in water...

Do you have any pictures of your oven?

The only reason they didn't want to do it is because they didn't want you break/cut the bricks in half. If I had a tile saw I would have done them all myself, but they kept yelling at me like I was retarded or something. W.e I don't really care how it looks as long as I can use the oven.

I'm the guy with the 3-legged dome project over at FornoBravo.

I figured you can easily do a cylindrical shape enclosure.  With a large diameter like that you really won't be cutting any bricks.

My dad told my uncle that we didn't have the bricks when we actually did, so my uncle didn't come until Friday when he was supposed to come on Tuesday. If it didn't start raining yesterday I would be making pizza tomorrow. It is almost done, there is only one more slab of limestone to be put on top for the roof and its done. Only thing after that is getting the marble for the table and the front of the oven. I don't wanna post anymore pictures until it is fully finished.

It should have had been done about a month ago, there were so many set backs. Its like Murphy's Law, "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong".
