Step by step
A photographic oven installation guide

Step 1: Build a reinforced base.

Please note this piece is not included and has been shown purely for illustration purposes. It is too heavy to pick up and too risky to send out on the pallet delivery networks. For this reason we recommend the use of either gravel boards (made from reinforced concrete) or cement board (such as Hardiebacker). Available from all good builders merchants and DIY stores. 

Step 2: Form a layer of fireclay or perlite with ciment fondu.

Step 3: Place in position the oven floor sections.

Step 4: Check that it is perfectly level.

Step 5: Place in position the oven mouth without mortar.

Step 6: Place in position the oven vault without mortar.

Step 7: Drill and insert steel staples to join together the oven parts in both the back and sides.

Step 8: Drill and insert steel staples in the back of the oven.

Step 9: Join the refractory brick mouth arch (optional) and insert the flue (optional).

Step 10: Cover with 10cm rock wool insulation and render with lime mortar.
