Smile Introduction

HI, I'm introducing my husband and myself, both new to this forum.
We live in SW Michigan and operate a small organic fruit farm and bake in a 52"x60" Mugnaini oven. We are looking for plans and/or a mason to build a white or Gueulard oven that is a bit larger than what we are currently using.
Can anyone recommend a mason or share plans ?

Hi Michigan,
Not much here on Gueulard ovens. There are plans in the Forno Brovo store for free. Just go through the check-out process and you will be charged $0. As I understand a Gueulard oven is an oven with the heat source outside the oven, like in a separate fire-box. The dimensions for the FB design are for the fire inside the oven. Don't know if they translate well to the external fire-box. good luck.

There is very little actual experience with modern "white" ovens. We've seen some illustrations from old books posted, but I don't remember any actual builds. The only real white ovens being built that I know of are accessories to masonry heaters. MHA has more. These ovens are tiny, and not suited to commercial use.
One more link (Commercial Low Arched Gueulard Bread Oven) from ALF who used to be associated with FB in the UK. Maybe James would have a contact.

I would suggest contacting Albie Barden owner of Mainewoodheat.com. He specializes in masonry heaters. He may know a mason in the mid-west that might be able to help.

MB,

Welcome to the site. You can find the Pompeii oven plans in the FB store. Click on Order, e-books and cd rom's and you're there. Place your Pompeii oven plan order and you will not be charged.
