Every Thursday we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm. Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and someday, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!

2nd Man asked me to post one of his inspiration list items.  He has always wanted an outdoor bread/pizza oven at the farm.  There are literally hundreds (thousands?) online with pictures.  We are kind of partial to this style. 

It's an Adobe oven, a DIY weekend or two project. It comes from and is made of clay, modeled after old world clay ovens in other countries. It can be made low to the ground like this or some people have built brick stands and put this on top (a permanent stand of course).  The construction process doesn't seem TOO intimidating but it is some work. We'll just need to get this on the schedule when a lot of the other harder stuff outside is done and we're looking for another project.  This is one of those "hey lets build an oven this weekend" when we don't have to build flowerbeds or outbuildings or gardens or plant trees, etc.  But that's what it's here for, inspiration!  

Be inspired!


  1. Eric of Root Simple built one and has several tutorials on his blog.

    1. Eric will also talk with anyone on the phone, too.

  2. That is so cool. I would love one of these too. Keep us posted in the future when it happens. I'm going to add this to my own list, ha.

  3. That would be so much fun to have at the Farm. And just think of all the goodies that would come out of it!

  4. Awesome. That would be really neat for you to have one at the farm place.
    A friend I know had a pizza oven put in her kitchen a couple years back and she absolutely loves it.
