I am in the process of building a new home and including an indoor wfo.  I am attaching a few photos to show the progress.

Looks beautiful. You must be so excited about your new home and oven. Please tell us more about the oven.

Congratulations!

It is based on the Pompeii plans from Forno Bravo.  40 inches was the biggest I could fit.  Dome is 16 inches which I felt was a good all around hight for pizza, bread and roasting.  I  like the look of a brick oven as opposed to cast so decided to go that way.  Made sure the hearth is well insulated with 2 inch insulation board, dome wrapped in insulation blanket, skim coat of concrete and then will get vermiculite on top and around sides.  The Portuguese mason told me that in the  old county they insulate with ashes.

Very nice oven.  Make sure that your A/C guy knows you need positive pressure.  I'm very jealous, your going to love it i'm sure.

Looking great Trosenberg!  Can't wait to see more pics as this project progresses.  If I ever get a 2nd oven, it will be bricked lined as well.  Congrats!

T,  nice work on the oven!  Looks great.  As one who has handbuilt one in a home,  I am wondering what your particular town thought of the project and what codes they looked for you to conform to.  I am not prying,  I have just not seen it done lately.   -Marc

Welcome!  We put in our indoor WFO last year and couldn't be happier with it.  You will love it!  Yours is beautiful, I love the brick surround and hearth.  Just lovely.

As far as complying with local codes it was treated like a fireplace, so had to be so many inches from combustable framing etc.  The  building inspector  &  I  have a tacit agreement that he will get a few slices  and a glass of wine when the time is right.

T,  thats how they decided to treat mine.  The only one rule that does not work for that IMO is the I think 18" hearth clearance from the fireplace opening.  on the floor due to the fact that the oven mouth is 40 inches or or off the floor.  If an ember were to fly out at this height it could go much further than the 18 inches.  I did a 5' concrete floor around the oven just in case.  Nice work all around,  it will be amazing. -marc
