These ovens are masonry marvels and can be customized according to space and requirement very easily. The oven must have a flue or chimney for the log smoke to escape. The design is pretty much standard with slight tweaks and twists here and there. But always, there is a scope of creativity when going for this type as one can easily accommodate one’s imagination with the design. Also, one can match the house design to fit it into the theme well.

Points to note:

– Take the necessary permissions and NOC before installing the oven.
– Fire needs to be controlled so being careful and taking some training beforehand is a good idea.
– Do not have kids unwatched around the oven.
– Blend a custom built oven with the design.
