Default Toms Oven In Nanyuki

Lets see if this works. There should be pictures of a Pompei oven built on a retaining wall.

Wow, you've been busy and your efforts are paying off - looking good!
When did you start your build?

The last five.

I don't think I ever would have done this (or even attempted it) without the FB Website. Every question I had seemed to have an answer somewhere on the site. And to really cheer me up, every mistake I made seemed to have been made (and corrected) by at least one or two people on the site.

Cheers. Tom T

This has been going for a while now. I think I started building in Dec 07 and had it finished by the end of March 08. I had a lot of spare time.

Yery nice oven! I love the setting, too - without the house in the background it looks as if the oven was in the middle of nowhere.

How difficult/easy was it to source materials in Kenya? I was just thinking that it would be nice if you posted a source list, for anyone near you who starts an oven....

Hey Tom,

I would also be interested in how you are using the oven -- is it for fun, or is it a practical oven?

Where are you in Kenya and what is the region like?

It's very cool having a Pompeii Oven in a new place.
James
