This is more or less up to date now that I am finished. This will you a good idea at the cost of building one of these things though. Its a rough cost since you probably won't build it this way.  I WAY OVERKILLED to construction (especially for a temporary install of a 3-4 years). Also the ash vacuum was a waste of money, I do use it on the house fireplace but kind of a waste. I much prefer the splitter I got for xmas, a great tool for making those small logs this oven needs.
