Title: Converting farmhouse fireplace into piza oven
Post by: carmine on February 02, 2006, 04:40:54 PM
Hi folks
Stumbled on this great site, great ideas for me and will be keen observer here.
One question....my farmhouse kitchen has unused 4ft wide by 2.5ft deep by 2.5ft high wood burning stone fireplace + chimney (floor to ceiling with concrete hearth 3ft off ground on stone blocks).

Has anyone converted such an internal fireplace by installing a small brick built pizzza oven (square or dome) on existing hearth? Does it need a vent if there is existing chimney?

Thanks.
