Very cool. I think that if you make your openings inside/outside the same dimension - you could cast one refractory door for use on the non-seasonal side - e.g., if you are in summer, it goes inside and vice-versa for winter. That way, you get the best possible heat retention for the oven and only have to move the heavy door a few times a year.

I am aiming for something like this on the inside of the kitchen.
The plan is to have both chimneys on the outside.

Piet,

The indoor/outdoor oven concept will be really nice. Keep sending pics of your progress.

Did this ever get completed? I am planning on doing the same thing and would love to hear your thoughts and what you might do different.

Hello,
I would love to see the finish product and hear about how it retains heat now that you have been able to use it for a while. Any problems retaining heat?
My husband and I are thinking of doing this and would love to chat. My other concern is that during the summer the oven will heat the whole house and get too hot. What are your thoughts on that?

Thanks

Definitely an interesting build. Don't see many houses built like that anymore...
