I have just started a new project. I intend to build an outdoor bread oven -actually you can cook most things in it but bread oven is what it is most commonly called.
Yesterday, being a bright and sunny day seemed a good time to begin making it, So I prepared the base. It will be built on an existing earth embankment so all I needed to do was dig out the soil to a comfortable working height and make it flat.
I then put sand/gravel on the flat bit and placed some paving slabs on to that cementing them in. That is as far as I got. Looking at it this morning I think I shall have to make it a little bit longer.
It is raining hard today so the next stage - a clay tile floor - has to wait a bit.
Here are a couple of photos of progress so far.

I will of course keep you posted on my progress. There is a lot to do yet and no certainty it will work but I will enjoy doing it.
