If this oven is too large for your needs, you will want to reduce the dimensions by following the ratios arrived at by the research team. Anne, In my bread oven files is an Autumn 1989 issue of Simple Cooking (John Thorne editor) in which a small indoor brick oven from Oven Crafters (Tomales California)was featured.
After the oven has been fired once or twice it is recommended to add extra insulation in the form of ceramic fibre blanket. At the same time, consider the fire hazards and avoid placing the oven next to a combustible structure. I have a winter place in south west florida where I plan to build an oven however the clay belts are in the panhandle!!! To my eye this armature is the most beautiful part of the oven, and yet it is there to be sacrificed in the first fire. Over two tons of stone, mortar, and clay are impossible to move, and we need to be especially mindful of fire hazards when we use this oven, which places limits on the times we can safely use it. It helps to lay in a course of reinforcing chicken wire over the first few courses above the metal door opening as this area expands under use, the heat causing cracks.
Before you even bring the clay to your site, however, you will want to test a small loaf by firing it in a bucket of burning sawdust. The photos below show the completed firebrick core for a clean burning Finnish contraflow masonry heater core. The oven will be used for a variety of foods including pizzas, cast iron dishes, roasted meats and vegetables as well as fresh in-house breads.

It should be close enough to the kitchen to be convenient for watching the fires, transporting the raised loaves into the oven and the baked loaves into the house, as well as loading the oven with all of the subsidiary items to be baked: pies, roasts, root crops and the pans of ripe tomatoes to be put up. Whilst chatting with my number one cocinera y esposo, I became interested in making my own bread oven. Because my pizza oven is built into a slight mound, I created a crude damp-proofing barrier from some left-over packaging plastic and then backfilled with dirt and then trimmed the excess plastic off.
If you choose to install the oven indoors or under cover it may then become subject to building regulations and the clean air act. For good measure I placed a few bolts through the perimeter 2X4’s into the inner void, to be firmly affixed when the cement was poured. They appear not to mention the use of additional salt in the construction of the oven they documented.(page 47 following).


The blanket can be adhered to the outside of the oven with ceramic fibre adhesive, a mesh placed over the blanket and the whole oven is then rendered with Outdoor Oven Cement to make it waterproof.
We learned that by doing this the resulting interior of the oven is both smoother and larger. However, if you extend the 2X4’s a foot to the front of your base you will be able to use these arms as a foundation for a removable apron, useful for staging the loaves after the fire has died down and the coals have been raked. The second oven, in Maine, incorporated the chicken wire reinforcement and has only two hairline cracks to the left and right of the arch, a result of better distributing the stress of expansion. The oven floor has a 36″ diameter, plenty of room for a large pizza party or an entire Thanksgiving meal.

The photo below shows one of the first hot fires rolling over the top of the oven as it heats the firebrick dome. With no local masons certified in heater building, the owners reached out to Fire Works Masonry.

The fireplace has long sandstone heated benches, stone mantel and shelves, a white bake-oven, and a large wood-box for wood storage. Now that all the wood is burned out the clean sweep of the metal door frame provides a perfect template for constructing your door.
