This particular oven was designed to have a feeling of old world charm and warmth. We used a brick that is made with lots of scars and multicolored surfaces. It is also embedded with sand to give it the feeling of having been weathered for a long time. The copper flashing, at the base of the chimney and  around the arched pop out below the entrance, was left unfinished and will patina as time passes.

We placed a brick course below the top row of split face block to give the oven a more proportioned look.

We can create whatever appearance to attain the look and desire that suits your space. The exterior could be stone, brick, or even stucco that would give you a more European feel or the Santa Barbara style that is very popular. We suggest you consider this oven will be there forever, so make your choice with that in mind. Read more…
