Default Re: Want to build Wood Fired Oven Attached to Kitchen

I like all the advice and will be working on a plan to submit to the city code office who is giving me a wavier to have commercial equipment in my home. I am recently disabled and got a settlement from my accident. I am going to have the largest private kitchen that the code office has ever heard of. I plan on doing a little catering from my home and don't want to ever feel that I don't have the right equipment for the job. I am also working with the health department so I can have a cert from them as well. I know not going up to the 3" gas line is a case of being a Scot and not wanting to waste money.

Does anyone have a set of graphics or plans that I can use for my set to turn into the code office. I was thinking about enclosing the base of the oven and placing a area for long tool storage and wood storage as well. I could hang the tools on the wall if I moved the pizza prep fridge back a few feet. It is on wheels and we have about 20 feet of wall before we get to pantry entry and walk in freezer entry. I have done 90% of the plans for my kitchen myself with the architect just copying mine into his system. As to cost we are at ~$156,000 right now with about ~3,400 for the pizza oven and ~$16,000 for unexpected expense, early completion bonuses, and missed deadline permit penalties. I had asked a local mason about doing the oven and he quoted me $20k. I have the time right now and would have the help of the on site workers if I need any heavy lifting done. So is it better to buy the kit from Forno bravo or to buy the plan and get the supplies locally and build a connection with a local supplier...

Our permits expire the 15th of November...
Thanks everyone for your help.

Chef...

Chef, as you know I chose to build a pompelli oven based on the plans on this site (by the way the are free). For me the deciding factor was the DIY challenge and so far I have not regretted the decision. That's not quite true, occasionally I realize that if I had built from a kit I would have been baking in it for several weeks already. I don't know if there is a dealer near you, if not buying the kit and paying shipping would likely push your budget (though not by much). I don't think there is really a right or wrong decision here, it really depends on your priorities (speed of assembly, DIY factor, and cost). I hope that in addition to catering you decide to have some cooking classes (hint) in that showcase kitchen you are creating. Bruce

For what you are planning I would say the price is within the ballpark, just make sure he knows hoe to build an efficient well insulated modern oven and not an old fashioned one that leaks a lot of heat.

AL, I plan on building the oven myself. I know that the mason labour is well worth it but I am lacking things to do and would like to take on the challenge myself and make it my oven. I know if he built I would probably have a oven by labor day but it wouldn't be mine. I plan on something that my grandkids will wonder about...

Chef,
I am very interested in your build and what seems to be an awsome kitchen setup; and am retired airline, i.e. fly for free, I might be interested in paying a visit to give you a few starter hints and tricks. Send me a PM if you are interested.
