Oven Installation - Placed on the Base

Delivery of the Forno Bravo Vesuvio oven was scheduled for Tuesday, May 10. Forno Bravo had quoted 21 days to build the oven and up to a week for shipping and everything was on schedule.

I had my contractor lined up with a forklift rental... unfortunately I had to be out of town that day because of my grandfather's funeral in Ohio. It would have probably been too difficult to push this back, given the freight company not wanting to hold the oven long probably... so my in-laws were here to help supervise the process.

It was quite a process... it's quite an oven. A few tiles were chipped during the installation process (and a bit of grout, as well). 

But, Forno Bravo sent some extra tiles and my contractor's going to patch things up when he comes back to build the island that is going to come out to the right of the oven, as part of the bigger project.

This is one of the conceptual drawings, below. I'll have work space and more wood storage and there will be a dine-in counter on the other side. We're just going to have a table instead of a fire pit though. The pizza oven is our fire feature!

More pictures to come from the first two times we fired it up over the weekend!
