RUNNING INTO TROUBLE WITH THE WOOD-FIRED OVEN
So, I went to the county inspection office yesterday to see what they think about our construction plans. Turns out, it is a big deal to have an Italian wood-fired oven installed. They want me to pay $4,500 to have it inspected by UL (Underwriters Labs). Ouch! That oven ends up costing us about $15,000 without installation. It's a lot, but we don't want to buy any other one, because Forno Napoletano ovens bake absolutely the best pizzas, even in Naples. They have a special low-dome construction and excellent heat insulation.
