This first blog of mine is about some of the things you need to decide before the mason arrives with your oven.
Being an oven owner and having built oven many ovens, I feel that I am qualified to help guide you through the process of choosing which oven might be best for you and where on your property to locate it.
If you came into our showroom, (The Arch), these are some of the questions I would ask you:
Ovens come in many sizes, from smaller ovens for just one pizza at a time or a couple loaves of bread to larger ovens more suitable for family and friends or entertaining large groups of people. How do you expect to use your oven? Everyone has different goals with their oven, so this is the first thing to consider. You want to make the right oven selection for your cooking style.
Do you want the ease of a wood/gas oven or do you enjoy the process of building the fire and learning to cook with "live fire"? I can discuss the options with you.
Do you want a stand-alone oven or prefer your oven built into an outdoor kitchen? Do you want counters, or would you prefer to bring a table or cart up close to the oven? Would you prefer a stainless steel oven that is portable and can sit on your deck?
Do you want the igloo style or an oven totally built into a structure or "housed"? Do you want rock, brick, block or stucco as the finish on the base, oven dome, or housing?
When people ask how long it takes to complete an oven installation, the answer will be as short as a couple of weeks for a simple oven installation to a month or more for larger more complicated installations. The Forno Bravo stainless steel Bella series is the exception, as once the oven arrives at your house, you can be cooking on it within a couple of hours.
You are putting your money and inspiration into this project, so it’s always helpful to work with someone who has experience, someone who can work with your architect, builder, or any design professional or help guide you and or your mason through to a successful project. A consultation with a mason is an excellent first step.
In the years I have worked with The Arch I have helped sell and install many ovens, both residential and commercial. We work with and sell high quality, efficient, Forno Bravo ovens both residential and commercial as well as their Bella Outdoor Living stainless models. Sometimes we install from start to finish, sometimes the owner will take on the entire project or use masons that they know, and often we are involved with part of a project. No matter how you choose to have your oven installed, when you purchase from The Arch, we are ready to help you and answer your questions so that you have a successful installation and are cooking sumptuous wood fired food as soon as possible.
