Pitched roof on a corner installation - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Pitched roof on a corner installation

    Does anyone have any pictures of a completed project where they installed a pitched roof on an enclosed corner installation? I am just wondering how they went about it as the oven opening would be towards one of the corners of the base, not the side, and a conventional roof line doesn't seem possible.

    Hi Neal,

    If you go to the FB website, click on the Photos link, Residential Pizza Ovens link, then go through the pages, you will find a few completed WFO projects corner installs with pitched roofs on enclosures.

    Here are a few examples of pitched roofs:

    1) Page 10 of 50, third row - Manteca, CA oven.
    2) Page 25 of 50, third row - Sydney, Australia oven.
    3) Page 38 of 50, first row - Boise, ID oven.

    I really like the Boise, ID oven with its copper shingles. Amazing!

    I'm doing a corner install with a pitched roof, but I don't have photos yet. I'm almost done, and I will post photos soon to give you an idea.

    It is possible, so go for it! Good luck!

        Thanks for pointing me in the right direction aceves. I guess that I didn't wander around the site enough to find those photos (duh, look under "Photos"). I have read many threads, including yours, and I am anxious to see how you finish the roof and enclosure.

        You are right in that the Boise build is beautiful. The copper roofing must be some kind of sheet product, but I have never seen it before. He makes good use of the intersecting fence. It would be interesting to see how the roof lines that you can't see were finished.

        Good luck with the remainder of your project. I will continue to follow your work. I am still trying to figure out where to dig the hole.
