Fire brick

Finished the foundation for the earth oven today, packed it with drain rock and sand, levelled the sand and placed 21 fire bricks on top.

Once the weather cools off and I have a free day and a few free helpers, we can get busy building the dome form and applying the thermal layer of sand and clay. With the 30ÂșC-plus days we've been having lately I know that it would be a losing battle trying to keep the sand and cob wet enough to work properly. Once it feels like fall, we can get busy with the next stage.
