Oven using heat vented in from fireplace below
I used your CD to create a very unique oven which includes a fully functional lower fireplace. The complete cuisine and leisure area is simply Brilliant. In all Aspects I should mention.
I was able to vent the fireplace through an enlarged ash drop and it works great.
The lower fireplace is vented through a 4” x 16” ash-slot. I had plans for a supplemental exhaust fan but it appears after Several large burns that it is not necessary (even in relatively windy conditions). These pics were taken after multiple fires and uses of the oven and you will notice The lack of external soot as the oven has Also a well sized flue. The chimney is over-sized (14” stainless) and the heat Carries the smoke from the lower fire right up through the exposed area of the Oven. I have set up the fireplace either for gas or wood as I am pretty lazy most of the Time.
Wood storage is in the rear of the structure and sub woofers inside both Sides aiming straight out round out the above mounted sound system. As I am A musician, the ambiance with a quality sound was a must(I even have an underwater Speaker in the adjacent pool). The small rocked area in the fore-left is a gas fire-glass pit.
The larger rocked area in the fore-right is a water feature that shoots a stream of Light color changing water into the adjacent pool (it uses the same principle as fiber optics, But water as the conduit instead of plastics).
All in all it was a fun project and I used information off your CD as an invaluable aid.
Thanks and regards,
