In the end I decided to take all the information on oven design and make my own. My design was a quick and dirty design. Meant to be a temporary proof of concept that I would use to familiarize myself with the ins and outs of oven building. To keep costs down I used a limited number of firebricks and commercial grade high-strength cement.
First I drew out my plans, dimensions and dome firebrick placement. The rest of the oven would be 2-3 inch thick concrete.
The base of the oven was built from metal stud material. I then built a platform to where I poured an insulating layer of vermiculite and cement. Then with rebar to reinforce the oven baking surface I was ready to pour.
