Default Re: Dome vs Barrel Ovens

You will build a form either way, but with a barrel or low dome rectangular, you can build the dome in a couple of hours.

Okay, low dome or low roof -whichever it's called - means a curvature is still involved? I thought he meant a true box shape with a flat roof (I've seen them professionally built so it can be done - but it looks like it'd be complicated). Curves I get - long flat expanses I have trouble figuring out.

Flat roofs are panels or supported by angle iron.

That was what I was thinking but it seems more difficult to me. <shrug>

Thanks!
