Pictures of making stand from ground up. It took almost 2 1/2 months working on it part-time. On to next phase

Coming along very nicely. Looks like the top concrete pad is nice and thick. I am sure it can take 10 ovens  :-D

How I spent my Saturday afternoon. Impatiently awaiting arrival of oven. The bubble in the level doesn't show well, but it is dead center and the framing square gives testimony to the square corner. Yea!!

Neighbor stopped to visit and I conned him into helping me set the base. He probably won't visit again until this project is finished. work has stopped at this point because of rain.

Rain stopped, I recruited 2 other old men and a lot of progress was made today. PS this is how 3 weak old men set the dome pieces Chad.

Oh my gosh I'm an idiot. I'm currently putting together my 950b and four of us almost killed ourselves lifting those dome pieces into place. The best part is, I even have an engine hoist just sitting behind my garage. ARGH!

Antoine, maybe you can recommend an engine hoist in the instructions? Hahaha.

Moving right along. Setting the pitched roof by myself is really taking a long time.

This is a good thing not to mention to your friends.

That was my biggest hang up on my home oven was stumped on how to do the roof for a month !
ended up few angles and just going out the side of roof,  much easier than trying to get through gable for me
Keep posting looks great !

I used the free online framing calculators to compute angles and rafter lengths.

Following are pictures of front before and after adding front bottom pieces. Then put 11 bags of vermiculite (expensive) inside for insulation. Would have had it totally enclosed yesterday except I broke a $%&@! roof piece cutting it and had to stop and go get another sheet of hardibacker. After cutting the 1/2 backerboard by hand, I hope to never do that again................
