Wow thank you so much for sharing this with us.  I really enjoyed your article.  It was so precise and the diagrams are amazing.  You did a beautiful job on your oven.   That is one big chimney.  But I can see that you would need that to clear the roof of the building you made your oven in.  Wonderful you must really enjoy your new oven.

Thank you for your appreciations. The barn is a very old one (the main oak beams that you can see are more than 200 years old). All the roof is covered by handmade tiles, so, when I made the chimney I had to take care to conserve all this atmosphere.

Thank you again.
