These photos show our Wood Fired Oven Patio build. The oven itself is a 48" kit from FireRock weighing in at 1200 pounds. I think the only important missing photo is one that would have shown the oven wrapped in Forno Bravo insulation before the walls and roof were put on. Like all good projects, it took longer than expected, but we were using the oven long before the patio was complete.
It's been a lot of fun learning how cook with it -- I'm sure we could practice for a lifetime before knowing what we're doing, and that's OK because it's a fun thing to practice. Our next house will have to have one, and we certainly learned some things we can do differently next time...
