Shvuntz; go to the Forno Bravo Store. There you'll find the plans for building a WFO. The download is free and the information is invaluable. And any other questions i'm sure will be happily answered by others who have already or are currently building.This is a great site.

Wow. They still make breeze blocks in the uk? That's long gone in the states. For those too young to remember:

My image search showed that "Breeze block" is UK for "Concrete block" in the US. Two nations divided by a common tongue. My mistake.

By the way, another link to a version of the plans is:

I have downloaded the forno bravo info as suggested..it's really good, and I have printed it out, and put it in a ring binder..lots of pages of good info.
Its our new bible, we are off out to buy 'breeze blocks' or maybe those hollow ones you can fill with cement..
thank you x
