Brick Ovens in Progress

I am currently working on two brick ovens.  The first one, shown here, is set on a piece of ledge and required forming the base to the ledge as a monolithic pour.

The second one is attached to a screen porch and will have a huge brick face on the room side with an arched wood storage and of course, over the oven mouth.

The herringbone pattern matches the pattern of brick on the patio I constructed around the ledge.  The angled mouth which gives great access to the baking area inside the oven means that the double arch has to be sprung from two parallel brick supports shown here. Buttresses will be built off the front face to provide strength.
Thanks to the owner for the photos.
