Perfect nook on our deck
Thank you for your website, for the building plans, step-by-step photos, and your email help along the way. I have just completed the project. For me, it has taken about a year. That might seem like a lot of time, and it is. However, the important thing to know is that I am rather busy at my work, I have never before laid a brick, poured concrete, installed a metal roof or anything like this. This has been one of the most satisfying projects I have ever worked on. I channeled each brick I touched.
I was able to find a perfect nook on our deck that really did not get much use and build it in as if it had been there all along. My oven is kind of a combination of the Masterly Tail and the Swishy. I used features of each, primarily to simplify the work, but get the best out of both.
I am primarily a pizza maker (have been for years) but have already cooked a whole chicken in the oven, with side dishes and dessert all in the oven. I can’t wait to cook a whole turkey, or bake some French breads. My task now is to learn or get used to how to precisely regulate temperature and plan meals (weekends) around it. I love the aroma of burning wood in the yard and I love the aesthetic look of the oven on our deck.
Many thanks and stop by if you ever make it to Virginia Beach … the oven will be on.
