Ah! Well that's alright then, 1.2m from the house I can do.

I would need to be a little off the boundry fence so I can get around and build from all sides, otherwise it is going to be a bit awkward, unless the new neighbour will let me into his garden, he seems nice enough though but it does seem the more people who help you build these things, the more people you have to give pizza to at the end.

I have re-read your post and it makes more sense now I am not in a rush!

Thanks for the offer, I am new to just about every aspect of the build so any advice will be gratefully received!

As soon as I have finalised the plans I will get in touch to run them by you and should be able to get to see the oven, I have a feeling they are a lot bigger in reality than they look in the pictures.

Cheers

Mark

I went to clear the area over the weekend, there is a bush that apparently has toxic berries so I have permission to dig that up, this gives me an extra metre to work with, the wife has also insisted in a fire pit alongside the oven for more traditional bbq'ing.

Unfortunatley it got too hot over the weekend so I went to Byron Bay instead, I had a pizza from a stone oven as research while I was down there but it wasn't much good, not sure it was wood fired, it could have been gas fired.

I will have a play with the new design and see what I can come up with for the new space I have.

Cheers

Mark

I remember "too hot".

There's no shortage of pizza places that advertise "brick oven pizza" that produce nothing of the kind. I was in a place recently that had a big "brick oven" sign out front, and an ordinary deck oven prominently placed just inside. I think folks are so used to pizza that tastes like red paint on library paste that they are reluctant to pay extra for real wood fired pizza.

Look after your neighbour with some freshly cooked pizza or bread.

well I have the bricks for the oven stand at least. Too much on at the moment to even look at starting new projects, apparently I have to finish the ones I have already started. I am still lurking on the forums though, you can never know too much before starting something like this!
