The tile floors were great. Didn't need to level at all with sand. Next up the top back done of the oven. Now that was a bit heavier Antoine.  ;) love the interior look of the 950B!!!

Wow! That front part of the dome was HEAVY!!! I'm a decent size guy and it was quite the experience getting that on with just me and another guy! No problems though and on to the next!

I will have to take more pictures later the chimney and front of the oven went in with ease. Then came the insulation! Wow this stuff is thick and I can see why this holds heat in with ease! I figured I would need to let the mortar dry and it looked like rain here so I hurried up and covered the oven with tarp. If the clouds pass I may light my first fire and snap a few more pictures. So far so good Antoine! I'm loving this whole experience of building my FGM 950B!!!

Yes, the dome pieces are heavy  ^^^ it is what makes the quality. 2 strong guys or 3 people is ideal.

Looking forward to some pictures of the first fire!

With that flame, your oven should be cured in no time!   :D

Cured all week. Finally letting this oven go and seeing what it can do. Wish I had some dough made up!

Looks great. I am hoping to follow in your footsteps this spring/summer. How did you finish the top of the chimney?  I see it is all boxed in, but what did you do around the pipe at the top of your framing? Keep the pictures coming. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished oven.

No they are all cemented together and filled. Along with rebar down each of them.
