Default Cornwall Oven

I received this nice-looking photo in the email today, and I thought there were a couple of nice things to point out. The oven is in Cornwall, UK and it's working perfectly.

First, I really like the roof design, with two gables, and the indented roof line over the vent and chimney section of the oven. It's a really nice effect and it breaks up the monolithic roof. Excellent.

I also like the chimney. Great choice.

But what I really wanted to do was poke fun at English weather. Did you notice that both sections of the roof have gutters and functioning downspouts. Necessity is the mother of invention, and it looks great. Besides, you have to do something with all that rain. :-)

Great oven,
James

Thanks James, it really is just a fantastic oven! And thank you for posting it!

Yeah, it is wet there, most of the time I know!

Hey, I know Cornwall reasonably well (my origins are there)... and yes, it can be the most lovely warm and sunny places to be, or... yes, just plain horrid!

That's a cute little oven, innit? I tell you, whatever the weather, I'd be happy standing at the oven feeding it logs.

Great photo, whoever's it is.

James, what you well done!
You have created not the wood oven, and sensation of a fairy tale.
In such furnace all should prepare simply perfectly well
Thanks for your experience and work. To me is on whom to be equaled.
Yours faithfully, Alexander.
p.s. Forgive me my English, I translate the electronic translator.
