General points

Once the domed oven is finished and dry, we can start to construct the housing around it.

Oven housing

We chose to surround the oven with a firebrick housing, jointed using fire cement made with proportion of chamotte (refractory sand).

the smoke throat section in front of the door, which forms the bottom of the chimney, must also be ordered separately from Fayol.

Fayol say that 500 kg are needed, and we used around 400 kg to fill around the oven, and 100 kilos for making up cement.
