Bakery Brick Oven- Part One

It is a pleasure to plan the construction of a brick oven that will primarily be used to bake bread.  Brick ovens have a long history of bread.  Pizza, although famous in Napoli in the old days, and now ubiquitous worldwide, is a comparative newcomer.

I began planning this oven with the owner, a German man, U. S. citizen, and a bread baker of loaves akin to those from his home country.  Even before the brick oven began, his house and bakery wing exuded the aromas of yeasted bread, rising and baking. But in a conventional oven.
