Yesterday I began the long planned project of building a wood fired pizza oven. This is the first stage of the larger project of creating a patio/outdoor entertaining area at the back of the house. The topography is such that I will need to raise the level of the land by building a dry stone retaining wall and, in effect, creating a terraced patio.The foundation of the pizza oven will be well below the frost line.
Excavation and pouring of the foundation/pad.
The names of our young friends, Eli Snow, 3 yrs old, and Olive Snow, 8 months old, are placed into the foundation.
Tomorrow; the stand base.
