Tips for building safe outdoor ovens, pizza ovens and fireplaces
Under the NZ Building Regulations there is a lot of
building work you can do yourself.
Consider your neighbours when you are planning where to put your chimney.
Build away from any combustible material such as trees, shrubs, buildings, decks, wood storage piles or wooden fences.
- Users should always follow manufacturer’s safety precautions.
- Gas burning outdoor fireplaces or ovens must be installed by an authorised gasfitter.
