Mine's going to be an igloo, but mostly because I think the larger framed up style will be out of place where I had to put the oven.

I can see a framed up one in my next home- and I think I will go ahead and buy a ready-made oven next time. I'm having a ball with this one so far, but after we build a new house (and I do mean we- we do a great many things ourselves) I think I'll need a break somewhere! I've gotten so many ideas from the photos others have posted I'm going to have trouble deciding which ideas to pirate!

I was going framed (mainly due to weather) but I think I can build a weatherproof igloo for my area (cincinnati).

Plus I think the igloo will look a little smaller given where I put it...

Thanks everyone that voted. I found it intriguing to see how those of you voted. I believe it is great to see those that chose each. I will take a few photos of the area and backyard, then present idea on what I like. Your thoughts from there, argree or not, is appreciated.
Acoma.

My wife has said the oven will be...............Framed. I guess we will do it once our other 4-5 summer projects are over. Our couryard will be concrete with colored iguana's as shapes, with some being different colors. It will look really cool when done..........eventually. I am thankful that we still have people polling. This lets us know each other more as a team and our passion towards certain styles.

George, I have been so busy with some landscape projects, work, and being on a school committee which is designing a future Montesdori high school, that I have had limited time to participate here.

I knew mine would be framed before I started. It is part of an outdoor kitched that was put to graph paper way before I started with the shovel.

It's not that I'm indecisive............ ............but I have a hybrid of the two styles. Just means I can't vote in the poll.........
