The Outdoor Fireplace and Real Estate Values

Jun 02, 2012

I’ve written quite a bit over the years about pizza ovens and real estate values. In the early days of the Forno Bravo Forum, we had a community member who had built (and loved) a Pompeii Oven, who had been transferred at work and need to move and sell his house.
