Title: Wood-fired Brick Oven in Dianella
Description: We built the oven structure from concrete block and clad the feature wall with rock.
The chamber is common cream brick with 100mm concrete added for thermal mass. Below, around and above the chamber has around good Perlite insulation layer and the sloping roof is concrete.
The wood storage area is at the back and in the front is the ash drop access.
As you can see a bit of smoke does escape out the front, perhaps if I had seen your CD beforehand I might have constructed the chimney to draw a little better. We have been using the oven every opportunity and are extremely pleased we took the plunge. We have been enjoying simple margherita pizza's and a recent favourite garlic prawns tossed into a preheated cast iron pan, delicious!
Great website, well done.
