Cob oven building

December 3, 2012

We are building a cob oven in the hoophouse. It will heat the hoophouse and cook the bread.  cob1  cob3cob4

I used Kiko Denzer’s book “build Your Own Earthen Oven” as my guide.  We built the base out of concrete and brick scraps held together with mud. The bottles help insulate the base. The next step will be the cob base followed by the firebrick floor to the oven.
