    Hi all,

    I have built this oven over the last year starting in February. I have tried to keep the cost down and think i have spent roughly 400.

    The concrete blocks and storage heater blocks were free and the kiln bricks were second hand from a reclamation yard.
    one thing i would say is make sure you have plenty of sand and cement! you may notice the concrete layer is a little thin, as i did this on a sunday evening and finished well after the shops were shut It does sit on a cross wall though that cant be seen in the pictures.

    The cooking area is 36" x 28" and it heats to 250C in about an hour.

    Still trying to find some decent wood to burn so i dont upset the neighbours too much!!

    Good luck, you'll need to go hotter than 250 C to do pizza well. Try 400 C.
