The Firenze Concept Oven is a traditional prefabricated oven installation project. We selected a Casa90 for the project because it gives a good balance of internal cooking size with manageable exterior dimension.

On a practical note, I needed to be able to move the oven and much of the installation material in a single trip in a VW Passat station wagon. It all fit very nicely. I had help setting the oven pieces in the car, and was able to unload the entire oven and materials by myself at our home. I required assistance setting the two dome pieces, but did the rest of the project without any help.

The project did not require any specific skills, other than a willingness to work with concrete blocks, wire and wet concrete.
