Default 43" Oven construction in Norway

Hi all. I,m Mario from Norway I,m half Italian and miss Italy and the food so much so I buildt this oven

First I want to thank Forno Bravo and forum for all the inspiration for this project. Also a great thank to Andrea and this video Costruire un forno a legna - YouTube

I have spent my spare time, building this pizza oven in my garden near Oslo. Unfortunately I have to quit now because it get colder and the vinter is coming soon. not good for masonry work in cold Norway. But looking forward to continue in the spring and will post more pictures then. Now I,m about curing the oven, and i hope making a Pizza next month.

My plan is to cover all in natural stone and have a big chimney in stone.

Some more pictures of my project here in sunny Norway

This spring I built a " Pergola" over the oven , that I going to cover with reinforced glass . I will get it next week.

And my white glass concrete glass counter top is almost finish just need some fine polish in the end of the project, when the stone work is finish.

Now I,m going to cover everything in Sand stone from India , I worry a little about the chimney it will be around 2 meeter high , so it will be some challenge to work with it. I thinking to do something like picture nr.5 hope my dome will hold it.........

Yesterday I made some delicious Pizza. And now I making Chiabata bread and foccacia . Really enjoy my oven
