Default Re: Oven in existing brick outbuilding

A suggestion. Someone, I think it was Marcel, had the bright idea of using two parallel ridge beams instead of one in the center, to deal with the centered chimney problem.



There's no reason for the ridge to be centered, and this could be easier and stronger than splitting it where the chimney comes through.

(M) David, I only wish that I could claim credit for that original idea. It came from someone's father in law. My solution was not nearly that elegant. My metal flue has flexible elbows that allow the flue to zig zag by the side of the ridge beam.
