A customer of mine found the solution; build the oven into one end of a greenhouse, fill the greenhouse with fig trees, herbs, and other Mediterranean plants, light the oven and 'Mangia!'
As is important when splicing a masonry project with any new building, I was brought in early, before the foundation was poured. We planned location, access, size and style.
From there it has been a dance between the various contractors involved, graceful and on-time.
Here is the first half of the project. Test firing and finals to follow.
The next post will show the finishing touches and the exterior building that encloses the oven dome itself with abundant insulation.
