Good firewood! I wish I'd had mine in place before I started. Better order or cut twice as much for the near future. That looks like 25 oven firings worth, more or less. Using the oven once a week, that's about six months.

Nice rock wall on the side! I'd kill to have enough rock to do a nice wall like that. Hard to pay for rocks somehow. They're free if you just pick them up. The ones around here are either 200 LBS or 6 oz.

Too true! Lovely wall... I'm guessing you didn't just collect the stones for it though?

The stones for my stand were the single most expensive item for the whole oven. Kind of cramps your finances for the rest of the build... and if you live in the right place you'd just be able to pick them up!

The stones for the drystone wall all came from out of the garden, the big ones in front of the pond came from the local quarry for not much more than the cost of delivery. I built the house about 14 years ago on a bare plot so with the exception of the big Ash tree everything you see I built or planted myself.

The week ended well, we have had two days without rain and I am out of the ground with my build. It is a "Bank Holiday Weekend" here in England and one of the big events in this neck of the woods is the Spalding Flower Parade. We have friends in Spalding and their house is on the route of the parade. They will be tapping a firkin of good Lincolnshire ale and I have to go over and help them drink it. It will be hard to leave the build for a couple of days but I am always ready to help a mate out. They have booked the first pizza out of the oven, I will have to get a couple of firkins for that night. I will take and post some pics next week if I can find a place to rest my tankard. I am off to work up a thirst now, Bye.

That really is good of you to help your friends with their tragic excess of ale. You're a true model of generosity!

You can't beat a good local ale. Consider yourself lucky. :-)

I gotta start brewing again. Beer prices are through the roof for a good ale. I can produce it at 25% of the cost by doing it myself. Scottish and a nice hefe sound really nice about now!
