I moved house about 2 years ago and sadly version one of the oven didn’t turn out to be quite as portable as I’d hoped.

But that’s another story.

The remains of the wooden frame sat outside in the elements for a couple of years until finally the resurrection of the oven reached the top of the priority list.

I simply couldn’t go another summer without me oven. So here it is.

You can see the new timber of the frame and this time I opted for a fire-brick door and did a thick ceramic blanket layer between the heat-face and the vermiculite-concrete outer render.

The result?

I’m stoked. The oven has way more thermal mass being 20 or 30% bigger than the last one so takes about an hour and 30 minutes to get up to temp. But it cooks brilliantly!
