Hello..my name is Terry and I am a bricklayer/builder.

 

My interests are cooking, butchery and wood-fired ovens.

 

I have posted a few times but only just noticed the "Introduce yourself" category .....whoops

 

All the best in 2011....

big_laugh  Better late than never Terry!  Welcome.

I went to Art College in Newport, loved that building.  Last I heard it was being tuned into flats with no parking places - did that happen?

I'll try that again!

 Hi Terry and welcome....I note your interests...can I just suggest that you butcher them first, then get the woodburner going and them cook them...saves the animal welfare people coming down like a ton of bricks.....

Hi Terry

welcome to the forum ,i have just caught up on your other posts .the ovens sound fascinating do they take long to get up to temperature as they are large structures ,or do you have to keep them warm between cooking sesions

MOS .

sit down with a cupa and the urge will subside

Yes Terry, I do have to agree with all the posts above, I imagine that you're very handy to have around and in great demand with your skills.

I shall look forward to many more posts from you.

Many thanks to all for the warm welcome

 

...As far as Newport's old Art College.....work started and then the contractors went bust and as yet they haven't found a new developer.

 

The heat up times for wood-fired ovens vary. If you want one just for Pizza parties then people tend to buy "modular"...or kit form ovens. The heat up time is between 30 mins and 1 hour  and a small fire is kept to the back or side of the oven. If it is to be used for bread baking then a brick Pompeii-style or vault oven is used. Heat up time is 1 1/2 hours +. Clay/Cob/Earth ovens are also very popular and as long as you have a door...they are all capable of baking bread.

Terry, I found this yesterday.  It was so good to see inside the building again, I loved my time there.

I'll try that again!

Thanks for the update......I missed that. I only live 3 minutes walk from the college and pass it every day. Good to hear that it's back on the cards for completion.......as you said......It's a beautiful  building.
