I wish you hadn't started this thread :( . Love making different breads when I get time . Rye is my favorite . Then everybody starts talking about a wood fired outdoor oven which has been a nasty gleam in my eye for years . In coinsidense to this I got a contractor friend living in a camper on my farm for the summer who grew up on Long Island ,NY . Used to build these type ovens for a living and knows how to use them as well .
>Where am I gonna find space in my limited yard to build one ? Where am I gonna find time to build one with my other hobbies and farming obligations ? ........................................ Ah , crap ! I'll let you all know when I start the build ........................................

Check this oven out -

Looks cheap and simple to make. I do like the 55 gal drum oven you posted up thread. I remember a cafe in Merida Mexico and the guy turned a water cistern into a wood fired oven. Here's a picture of it -

Anyways, good luck with your journey, sounds amazing.

Just want to add that The Italian Baker is a great book for rustic style breads. That's where I started.
