Get on with it, man! That way I can learn from your mis . . ., um,
It certainly does not require an advanced engineering degree. My
greatest pause is that it would be a piece of work to take asunder if
location choice is wrong. I actually have a near-perfect place, under
the high and extended shed roof of the East Wing. It is close enough
to serve the kitchen handily, but would require building over the fine
ferrocement bed I built there.
I keep losing my crystal ball.
I was looking at old writings this morning and came across one about
the importance of making a master plan before any building or
permanent garden construction. Well, even with a good master plan, I
have this clay oven example of how you just can't think of everything.
