In the beginning...

So here's where it starts. We'd already decided to have a covered area at the back corner of our garden. Summer round here usually only means that the rain is a little warmer than normal, and I'm sick of having barbeques rained off. I want to be able to cook under cover, and the idea of a wood fired oven was born.
The picture here shows the site, taken in May 2005. My plan is to have half the oven enclosed in the summer house, which will be set at a 45 degree angle in this corner. The bit behind the fence has my polytunnel and veggie garden - must remember to get a decent spark arrester for the chimney to save melting holes in the plastic... The plants up the fence are siberian kiwis - they've already started to cover that ugly fence pretty quickly.
