So Friday was cinder block day. Saturday was for framing and pouring the concrete hearth that is structural support for the oven. Here is the fully wood framed oven stand.
Here is some of the initial concrete pouring. Note the rebar grid that is set inside the concrete hearth layer for additional strength.
The crew is laying the large rebar frame into the concrete.
That looks beautiful after the pour is done. That's my grill island in the background. This will cure and set until tomorrow, when we'll put the SuperIsol oven insulation on top, then the oven floor and dome. That dome is 600 lbs, we'll have a big crew to lift that up on place.
