Step One: Foundation

Note: Nothing during the process of building my oven is set in stone. There are many different ways to approach this project and the steps I have taken may not work for your situation. A very good resource to dig into is "Build Your Own Earth Oven" by Kiko Denzer.
I decided to erect by base on a concrete slab. We made a form from used 2x4 lumber(thanks Zahns!) and dug out a spot in the ground. My foundation is 4' x 4'. We mixed the concrete in a wheel barrow where we added a couple of bags at a time to make it easier to work with.
Next we'll move on to the base.
