Starting out - The bread builders

When I first got interested in building a bread oven, I bought this book.  It is a fantastic resource for understanding the basic design of a wood fired bread oven, the design described in here is a good first oven to build, if you dont want to risk coming up with you own design, then this is a really good starting point.  Alan Scott, one of the co-authors, is unfortunately no longer alive, he has been responsible for a large number of people getting into baking fantastic bread in real bread ovens.  His research has largely been the inspiration for for my design, but by utilizing modern materials, I have made a few improvements to reduce heat bridges and increase structural resilience.
