I wanted to go with a stone surface for the roof on this structure.  I looked at getting a full slab of slate cut however I really couldn't find what i was looking for.  I was visiting a nearby landscape supply store and found a Blue-stone slate from Uni Lock pavers which I'm assuming is meant to be used as a paver patio covering, however the slate was exactly what I was looking for,  It was thin, natural stone, the color was perfect, and I thought it was very reasonably priced.  We ended up using it for the roof of the oven and it came out awesome.

Just popping in to say you have another guy watching your great work!

Will be starting in a month or so myself, so seeing it done is very helpful.

Roof on and all the stone work finished.  Time for curing and counter tops.

Once we had cured it with small fires for some time we were ready to let it rip.

Looks fantastic!

Why did you pick the raised height version of the 950B over the standard height?  I'm wavering back and forth between these two myself and I'm curious what went into your decision.

Mark, we went with the raised height because we wanted to cook larger foods like turkeys in there.  We thought the lower dome would be problematic for this.  We ended up cooking a turkey in there and it was absolutely awesome!.  I guess a little bit of me also liked the look of the raised dome more.  We actually just cooked our first pizzas in there the other day and they turned out great.   Ill post pics soon.
