Default Greetings from Michigan

Hello Everyone!

I am new to the FB Forum. I have been reading and studying about brick ovens and masonry heaters for a few years now and continue to be intrigued by the idea of building my own some day.

I am looking forward to continuing my learning process here.

Best Regards,

Hello Kory,

Welcome to the group,

Like Cajun Knight says, don't put it off!

They really are pretty easy to build; a little work here, a little work there, and pretty soon you are on to the next bit of fun, learning to use your own WFO in the back yard!

Good luck with your build, keep us posted with pictures!

JED

Kory,

I second the above comments. Just jump in and build one!

Where are you from in Central Michigan?

CajunKnight & Jed..

Thanks for the encouragement. I actually have been "collecting" some of the materials for a year or so. I purchase some when I can and hope to have everything gathered together in the next year or so. I still have so much learning and studying to do!

Mike & db,

Thanks also for the encouragement and welcome.

Mike, I am in Mount Pleasant, due West of Midland. I read your complete build thread last night and really enjoyed it! I added to my "notes" as I have with much that I have read and learned from speaking to folks that have build WFO's.

I have so many irons in the fire right now that it is best for me to keep my own build in the planning stages until I can focus more on it. Like I said, I am collecting some tools and materials and am eager to start.

That being said, I want to involve my friends and family in the build and do it, for the most part, over a couple weekends. For this, I need a substantial amount of planing to be done prior to starting.

I am a designer/fabricator/welder by trade and enjoy "building" things. I have never done any masonry work, ever, and look forward to starting someday!.

Kory,

Good luck with your build. Even though you're not a mason, you have some "building" experience. You'll be golden. As you can see from my thread, you can get by pretty well with absolutely no knowledge or experience with construction.

Getting it done in a few weekends is ambitious. I need a group of friends like yours! The forum is an awesome resource. The photos and collective advice are invaluable. Looking forward to your build.

Hmmm, what to trade for?

Good luck with your plans...it's great fun!
