Bakery Brick Oven- Part Two

Foamglas insulation with ash dump excerpted 
4" Foamglas block insulation follow the pouring of the concrete slab that supports the floor of the oven.  Floor insulation is critical to maintaining temperatures in brick ovens.  Any plan that omits this results in heat being sapped downward and a constantly cooling oven floor- the last thing a baker wants.

The brick floor is set on top of the Foamglas in herringbone pattern.  Though decorative,  this pattern prevents the peel from catching on lateral seams in bricks, no matter how minor.
