Wow!! Great detail on the roof. The combination of materials really went together nicely. I really like the way you did your chimney.

Thanks guys for the compliments, I did copy a couple of others on their roof design and fit it into my build. I know I was on Dino's build a lot and several others that are too numerous to name.
Special thanks to my wife who picked all the color choices, except for the white soffit, which still needs the final coat of a cream color.
Too busy cooking for painting tho
Again Thanks
John

Oh, you aint kidding John about that roof. I know what it was like to nail something you can't stand on or just grab anywhere.

Is the stone cladding a tumbled paver? It's really beautiful. The colors are great and it has nice old world look.

You and your wife have done a great job. That side counter will be really handy.

Hi Dino, Yes the stone cladding are tumbled pavers that I "glued" to the cement board with type s mortar. My wife wanted the dry stack look and I have to agree she did a great job.
btw with all the FANTASTIC food coming out of your goregeus oven, have you gained any weight? I am jealous, because everytime I see you post some food I gain 5 pounds! LOL
You definitly helped me through my project and if you are ever an the east coast my door and oven are open to you and your family.
Thanks
John

Thanks John, we'd love to stop by some day so I'll keep it in mind. YES! I have put on a few pounds, not sure if it's age, wine-calories or wfo.

I've got 3 pizza/pool/family & b-day party's coming up within 4 weeks so I'll try to post some wfo food pics. Well that settles it: I'm obviously putting on weight for all 3 reasons listed

Are you talking about the hearth floor with firebricks? If so it didn't take too long having done some prep work ahead of time. Making a template out of plywood helps if you are putting the hearth inside the vertical dome bricks. If you are building ontop of the heart with dome bricks then it should go faster. Not so many cuts to do and none need be circular.
Good Luck
John

Thankfully!! Good news! I think if my WFO did blow away I just might NOT start another one!

You should have an after Sandy Pizza Party!
