Last December we sold our home and have sorely missed the oven.  Here's the old oven, traditional and all brick:

Our new house is contemporary, so we decided on a modern approach to the new oven.  It's almost done, flooring is the only thing left to wrap up.  Anxious for pizza!

Wow. Really, really nice. What kind of ovens are in there?

Thanks - first oven is conventional fire brick dome.  New oven is 304 stainless with fire brick floor - quick heatup and cool down.  Both ovens are insulated the same, thick layers of ceramic fiber.

Do you think the oven was a positive or negative to the buyer?

A positive.  We'll never have another house without an indoor oven, it adds value and sells houses.

Looks awesome!  I would like to have something similar. However, I'd like it to be gas and have a turntable like a Blackstone.  Ever seen anything like that?

I've always been curious about building a woodfired oven indoors... do you mind sharing what a ball park figure of having this oven installed cost, and what brands you ended up going with? 

Beautiful ovens!

I fabricated the oven and did the install.  Around $800 in the oven & insulation.  The stainless tile is expensive, around $1,000.  Insulated stove pipe was already there.

MaineLotus, the installation of your new oven is even more beautiful than your last one. Have you been happy with the pizzas so far?  Is the steel oven a lot different than your brick one, baking-wise?  I like the quick heating and cooling aspect of it. Hope to see some photos of pizzas from that beauty!
