WFO and open fireplace
« on: April 28, 2012, 06:40:14 PM »
Does anyone have any pictures or links for a stone built outdoor fireplace with a separate wfo above it. My wife and I would like to sit in front of a fire out by the hot tub, and I would like to incorporate a pizza oven if I am going to all the trouble

I have only ever seen one and wondered if it was a function thing. I understand that you most likely would not use the bottom one if using the top as it would be hard to stand in front of it because of the heat. My in head design envisions a old style firebox that is flush with the floor and has the wfo just above the firebox. A nice steel door and lots of nice stone

That second one looks great. Sure would need a long peel though with that bottom fire burning. I am saving all the pictures I can find and then will take bits and pieces from each.

This is going to be fun, my pad is formed and ready for concrete.

It seems kind of silly to have them together; each is a focal and gathering point, so it will get crowded with more than 3 or 4 people.  My ODK is within easy conversation range of the OFP, but each is in a distinct "room".

All I have is a 8' long space. My outdoor kitchen with an electric pizza oven is already to the right and my hot tub is to the left. Its a small yard.

I like the looks of this if the firebox was flush with the ground and had a bigger opening arched at the top.

How would you exhaust the bottom fireplace?

The bottom clay chimney would have to pass thru the wfo ot the wfo was not as deep with the bottom unit being behind the wfo back wall. ? :-\

It could be done with offset flues to either side, but it would not draw real well.

I think 8' is wide enough for a side by side. Maybe something smaller like this one http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/attachments/21/21555d1286639238-fireplace-oven-combo-002.jpg here is his build thread http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/fireplace-oven-combo-14536.html. You might have to have a smaller WFO because of space.

This one looks like its about 8' http://flagstaffhearthandhome.com/images/homepage/brick_pizza_oven-555pix.jpg and the oven looks like the same oven RobynB has which is a great oven.

This one looks amazing http://ctfamilyhomeandhearth.com/HH-Images/2011/05/tuscany-outdoor-fire-oven.jpg.



 :o With that in your backyard, who needs a house? I know where I would be all the time. I can only imagine the rest of the yard if the camera person turned around.

The link to the build of that one is also a great site for more information and design

Thanks again,
