During the summer months, I’m always looking for ways to make things more summery and cook more outdoor. What better way to cook than in the backyard? My favorite way to cook outdoors is with a big pot of pasta and a handful of fresh veggies, but sometimes I just like to bake something else. This rustic wood-fired oven is my favorite option for making baked goods.
It’s not a permanent solution though as it has to be built, so I will admit that the idea of baking in the back yard is appealing. Still, I find it hard to believe that you can cook something so delicious that it tastes so good.
It’s hard to believe too. The oven can take a lot of time to build and its actually a lot of work. The oven itself is made of a dense wood that needs to be heated to a certain temperature so that it will burn. So the oven takes roughly a day to build and a few hours to heat, so this makes the oven a bit of a challenge to use.
The oven is actually one of the most complicated and expensive parts of the Bushfire kitchen. It needs a lot of attention to build and heat. You also need a lot of space for the oven to stand. And then you need to build the countertop. And then you need to have an oven-safe space for the oven. And then the oven will need to be covered with a protective layer of wood.
But what is the cost to build and how many people are involved? That’s just how complicated this oven appears to be. If you’re looking for a practical oven, the Bushfire Kitchen is probably not for you.
The Bushfire Kitchen is a great example of a kitchen that can be built cheaply. The project took less than a week to build and uses a combination of easy-to-find materials and minimal design. I’m not sure, however, that it is a great example of sustainable design. The only sustainable materials found were bamboo, which was expensive to make, and natural gas, which is much more expensive than wood.
The actual design is all about using the cheapest and fastest materials available. With the exception of the bamboo, everything in the Bushfire Kitchen is made from materials that are as cheap as firewood. The walls are made from reclaimed wood paneling, the floors are made from old lumber, and the walls and ceiling are made from pine.
A few of the materials used in the Bushfire Kitchen are locally available, which is the biggest win in the sustainability department. All the appliances use the same materials and can be purchased at the local hardware store.
The only thing that is “local” is the bamboo floor, which is made in the village of Cumbria, England. The other wood products may be available to anyone with a few dollars and a hammer. Even more importantly, the entire kitchen is built to last for decades, which is a big plus for the eco-conscious homeowner.
The kitchen design is an interesting one. The materials that the floor is made of are fire-proof, which may sound like a bad thing, but actually makes it better than most traditional floors because it is more durable when you get into the more dangerous areas of the house. The bamboo is a sustainable material that is available and affordable in any market, so it makes it more sustainable than the usual materials that are more commonly found in modern kitchens.
