The Angel in the Details

An eye on the overall project is essential to brick oven building.  However, the details are what allow a custom brick oven to integrate into the owner's life.  Details, sometimes lightly defined at the start of the project, come into focus as the exterior is in process.  I have made a commitment, written into my contracts, to pay attention to aesthetic opportunities as they arrive.  It reads, "if TBO sees aesthetic improvements that do not significantly increase the labor or cost of the project, they will, upon approval of the owner, be done without additional cost."
The results have been remarkable and as individual as my customers.
