Tips for building safe outdoor ovens, pizza ovens and fireplaces
Consider your neighbours when you are planning where to put your chimney.
Build away from any combustible material such as trees, buildings, decks or wooden fences.
- Allow 4m of clear space
above, to the
front of the oven.
- Allow 600mm clear space
behind the oven, or build a brick or cement wall at least 300mm from the back of the oven.
Build your flue:
- at least 1.2m long
- with a shield on top to stop sparks from escaping.
