I had no formal training in building trades

I had no previous training in building trades. Nor I would take a course to learn how to build with bricks or work with building tools. Still I built my oven and the surrounding area.

Concrete over vermiculite – No roof

Instead of making roof, I spread a layer of concrete over the vermiculite insulation. Around the brick chimney I put expansion joint material which was sealed at the end with a flexible sealant.

Oven for outdoor area made of logs – incl. cocktails

The outdoor area is made of logs and the oven fits to it extremely practically. We have a fireplace in the log area also, often we sit close by the fire, listening its sounds, and have a few tasty cocktails while waiting for the oven to heat up. Loads of clear vertical grain Fir, and even heavy chunky logs – this wood looks fantastic and is very prized in the Pacific Northwest region.

I used to cook in winter as well

I built this MTO wood fired brick oven in spring of 2009. For four years I immensely enjoyed using the oven. I also cooked in it during winter when the oven was completely covered with snow. Then we had to move to a new house. Therefore I am about to build my new oven. This time it’s gonna be the new MTO model, the third MTO model generation.
