A Cool Conversation Nook and Oven Space
I really love the idea of a great outdoor space for my future house, and an adobe oven with a nice patio/gathering spot for conversation is high on my list. It'd be great to have a place to not only cook, but to hang out and maybe toast a few marshmallows on a cool fall night. I'm not sure if it's the smell, or if there's a good memory associated with fire, but a nice adobe oven where maybe some of the heat is vented out underneath the benches might be a perfect place to relax and let your hair down after a long day.
There are many styles of outdoor adobe ovens, and eventually I'll find "the one", but this could easily be a contender.
This is a great kitchen space with an adobe oven next to a modern kitchen. Although I love the design, it's too modern for what I'm looking to build.
I'd need more of an antique style stove like this... It's a start, but the price is way too much. I looked at some great modern stoves made in the antique style, but the price was still about $1,000-$1,500 more expensive. There's one plus to the stove I was looking at in that it takes wood, so I could possibly do away with a separate wood/pellet stove, but we're back to the issue of efficiency, or lack thereof.
This will take more searching - a baker can't do without a great stove, but where is it?? LOL
