Default Glasgow Pizza Oven Finally started

I've (hopefully) uploaded some photos of the foundations for my pizza oven. Before i started the oven, i had to build some decking at the back of the house, then level off the next section of the garden, before digging out a mini 'hill' and building a retaining wall where the oven is going to go. The 'dead-ish' brocoli in the first photo is where the oven will be.

The first time i ever mixed motar was about 4 weeks ago, so some things aren't as 90 degree etc as i'd like them, but i dont think it will matter too much, just aesthetically.

Hi Mark,

Yep Glasgow, Scotland. I started the whole project in February: building decking, levelling the garden etc. Started my holidays on the 1st July and was hoping to rattle on, but there have been about 3 dry days since! I think I've cursed every summer from now on by daring to build a pizza oven!

Thanks for posting

Cheers Ross

Maybe I need to start an oven build. We're in a draught here.

I have fond memories of Glasgow. Nice town. Great pubs!

haha, all your rain must be falling here.

Well we need something to anesthetise us to the weather. You don't seem to mind as much that it rains non-stop when you're 6 pints the better!

What did you do in Glasgow? When were you here?
