Fight your wife back!!!

Honestly, we use our oven often in late spring through early fall. We made a fairly small oven 39" and it heats up quickly and retains heat very well.

The gas grill rarely gets fired up. - we have a tuscan grill and I really like the way it cooks.

I've seen some pretty rapid oven builds on the site in the last 3 years - you can do it!

Best of luck,

Christo

Just visited your WFO website, Ken. Bravo! Good work. Very impressive oven and website.

Raffy,

My wife actually said NO when I asked. I stuck to my guns and decided to build it. It did take a while and time away from a young family on the weekends but now she loves it - we host partys from church, charity dinners and just having friends over. In fact I'm going to fire it up tonight after our neigborhood easter egg hunt!.

Good luck
Dick

The challenge I had was convincing her that I should build it rather than buy a kit oven.
Wasn't easy. Be persistent and let her be involved in the achievement of building the hearth.
I know she is happy with oven now and Im sure Ill be building one if we move house

Where would you suggest hiding a three ton oven? Trust me, she'll notice.

"Gosh honey, wasn't that there when we bought the house? Don't ask me where it came from. Here, have some pizza."
