One Week Down and...Progress!

Look at what we've managed to do in just one week!  Well, I'm impressed anyway.  We laid out a base of concrete masonry units (concrete blocks), built up four walls to a height of approximately 3 feet, filled in the space between the walls with concrete waste and sand.  Once leveled, we placed fire bricks on top of the base and then began to construct a mound of sand that will define the interior of the oven and will act as temporary support for the cob dome. 

We're all pretty excited about the progress so far   and like the way the oven is turning out.  We even managed to find time to lend a hand in the One World garden which will be providing the community with fresh veggies in no time!
