Just a little under a year ago I began construction on my new house. I broke ground in January and moved in on October 2nd. I designed it to have a wood fired pizza oven and Rumford fireplace in the open kitchen/living area. I decided on the Marra Forni 90 oven and Superior Clay components for the Rumford fireplace  . I will show start to finish photos of the entire oven build.

Venting for the pizza oven is 6" double wall stainless steel flue pipe and 16" x 20" clay tile for the Rumford.

The Wolf Heads are in. Take a closer look at the Rumford box in my last post. You can see one in the lower left corner.

Yes John, you are absolutely correct! Thanks for the tips when I first posted in January '12.

Now that is one bad ass custom installation Scot. The final finished room pic is just mindboggling when considering the amount of planning involved...good job man!  :chef:
