Smelling wood burning soon? awe just a small fire? LOOKS GREAT!
I am thinking all the brick (door opening) gets covered up with the chimney arch system?
Very exciting!!

You are correct, I am having a stainless plate made to face the front of the vent where the bricks start to taper which will help the vent to draw.   Now it's a waiting game for the Matrilite to fully cure before I can go any further.  It was raining for 2 days straight while we were working on it so I had to get a tent to keep it covered.

 How long to cure the Matrelite? About a week, the idea is to let it cure slowly & keep it dry.
are yuo doing anything with the outside of the igloo or just finishing as is.Stucco & granite.
Looks very cool BTW! Thanks

Well I'm 99% there; Just waiting on a steel vent hood that that I'm having fabricated.  I am very pleased with the ovens overall performance, it's a big oven & is very well insulated so it takes a bit of time to get to temperature.  It hold its temperature really well, after 2 days it was still at 350 degrees.  Below are some pictures of a pizza a due piani that I made last weeked along with som pictures of the oven.

Hey John,
Sure is a great feeling.  The door is 2 pieces & I remove it when I make pizza.   The opening is about 14".  My pizza's are about 11" so I use a 12" load & an 8" round to spin & remove.  My last firing was at about 950 degrees; after 2 days it was still about 300 degrees.

Hi Matthew, Can you tell me the color and the type of paint you used on your oven ? it looks really nice and your pizza is mouth watering. I have a primavera 70 and your color would match our patio . thanks for any help,Larry.

Hi Larry,
The paint is actually mixed together with the stucco finish coat.  The manufacturer is Durex & the colour code is 5494.

Matt,

That monster looks awesome!! A job more than well done, bro.  ;D

Can't wait to see some of the first pics of your oven in action and the pies that it will produce.

Good job.
