The brick oven

You sent me the oven building plans a while back and it is finally done! I actually picked totally the worst possible summer for building my oven here in Tennessee state.

I got 72 consecutive days of 90+ degrees Fahrenheits = 32+ degrees Celsius and no breeze to cool me down.

Lost 17 lbs. = 7.7 kg in the process but did every bit of the work only by myself.

Thanks for the detailed photo sequence and plans, working things was not difficult at all even though I am not in the trade (or, better to say, I wasn’t … because I am now).

  1. Hi Jim,
    Thank you for sending your oven photo. Looks real nice. What have you
    used for the roof cover, are they a slate stone tiles?

    Winter is just over here on the southern hemisphere. We also got some nice rain again, all the water dams are 100% full.

  2. Hi Rado,

    The roof is slate. The roofing supply company had some left over from a job that the roofer refused and they were going to throw them away. So, I got them for free. Green wasn’t my first choice, but the price was right.
    Only broke 1.

    Have a good one!

  5. Jim,
    I live in Dickson, TN and have got the oven plans on cd from Rado also. I would like to stop by and ask a few questions one day in the spring.

  6. I would love to have one of these brick fired ovens. This one has clean simple lines and is just the perfect size. Do you share your plans? If so I would love to get a copy and see if I can talk my husband into making one on our property.
    Thanks so much, Paulette
