Earth oven foundations pt2

Following on from the previous days work, the concrete had set and we were ready to start building.

We decided on a dry stone structure using the rocks we’d dug up from the rockery.  My wife and I stacked them carefully on top of each other using scraps of knowledge I’ve picked up on dry stone walling.

I topped off by laying perhaps the worst built brick circular surround and backfilled it with debris and old tarmac gravel until it was level.  We found that it wasn’t exactly circular, so we used a stone slab we found down the side of our house to make enlarge it back to 48″ diameter.  It does look cobbled together (rustic) but it does look fairly good imho 🙂

The neighbours have become very interested in it and are looking forward to trying the pizza!
