2 | Building a Brick Pizza Oven

I’ve been hard at work on getting Dyeing 104 ready to launch, and hubby has spent what little free time he has on the next steps of building a bigger, better, brick pizza oven!

First he spread over 1000 pounds of gravel in the bottom of the foundation he dug:

Next step is the rebar, that will help hold the concrete together. Usually you would put a pre-made mesh in here, but both our local Home Depot and Lowe’s did not have any of that, so hubby had to buy rebar, cut it to length, and make his own:

Thank goodness, we actually had RAIN this weekend, we’ve been so sorely in need of it, so this is all that got accomplished – looks like a lot to me! 🙂

  1. OK, I’m officially disappointed! The title of this post, in my email, was “Building a Brick Pizza Oven from Candied Fabrics”. First I read it in my email. Then, thinking that something was lost in the interwebs, came directly to the blog, only to find that there are NO FABRICS, candied or otherwise, used in the building of this Pizza Oven!!!

    I do not envy your husband working on this during this time of nasty HEAT-and-HUMIDITY. Phew!

    • LOL! I’m trying to get him to take it easy and not do too much at once. Because of the curing that will be needed in several stages of this project, there’s lots of down time built in!!!
