Shvuntz; go to the Forno Bravo Store. There you'll find the plans for building a WFO. The download is free and the information is invaluable. And any other questions i'm sure will be happily answered by others who have already or are currently building.This is a great site.

Wow. They still make breeze blocks in the uk? That's long gone in the states. For those too young to remember:

My image search showed that "Breeze block" is UK for "Concrete block" in the US. Two nations divided by a common tongue. My mistake.

By the way, another link to a version of the plans is:

I have downloaded the forno bravo info as's really good, and I have printed it out, and put it in a ring binder..lots of pages of good info.
Its our new bible, we are off out to buy 'breeze blocks' or maybe those hollow ones you can fill with cement..
