Next time I am going to use refractory (heat-proof) bricks and refractory cement for the inner dome and then make an insulation later from someting new and interesting like rock wool as used for house insulation. I also found that the terra-cotta tiles on the baking surface shaled a little so I might use refractory bricks for that too.
Gerritt,In your opinion would a brick and mortar done hold up better than the clay or would both need to be covered? I'm trying to get away from the roofing tiles or covering it.Thanks for your feedback.Doug
You absolutely have to put a waterproofing layer like roof tiles over the whole thing or it will start to disintegrate after a few rain seasons (Britain has one continuous rain season, come to think of it it...). It lasted 3 years without a waterproof cover and was occasionally patched. And then one day after a heavy rain.... well, you can the guess the story's ending! Suffice to say, it is not more.
Gerrit,Just wondering how your oven has held up over the years and if you would have done anything differently now?Thanks! Looks like a great oven. I'm going to build one this summer so just doing my research now.
