Thankx Matt, as per today, the w/site's content is only a 10% of what I plan to put in gradually.
This oven's outside brick wall is 8 bricks deep and 6 and a half bricks wide - 230mm brick.
Documentation with all the pictures show you this very clearly, including all materials used described with quantities. As well as mortars, concrete and back up insulation mix recipes.
Ground concrete slab for the oven is 1655mm x 2020mm ( 65.2 inches x 79.5 inches ). Wood ovens height can be choosed by you by making the dome to sit in a height as you wish and the chimney can be started created just from the point of the outside dome height upwards and as long as neded. This oven has the dome sitting on a top of the heart slab in a 1m hip height.
Dome internal measurements: 815mm x 920mm / Please see picture 't4', 92cm length begins measured from further inside of the chamber making it about a brick deeper, because the dome is getting narrower at that neck point I am writing down number 92cm, so in actual fact it's a few cm more.
Yes you can easily improvise and build your wood oven to your measurements. I made up a page about this, it's helpful, please use the bellow link to get there.
Thank you and enjoy,
