We just completed this pizza oven in the hills of Atascadero. The precast oven parts were imported from Italy by Mugniani of Watsonville. The corner block detail was inspired by the existing outdoor kitchen and the earthquake in ’92, when this particular home suddenly had an overwhelming surplus of adobe bricks. This oven also has a secret hatch so ashes may be easily scooped into the slot and dropped into the reclaimed douglas fir faced ash pan for later disposal with no ash mess.



We have started work on this strawbale home in Santa Ynez. We are teaming up with Paul Poirier who consults with US Green Building Council on a national level. We are excited to collaborate with him and his team on this ultimate sustainable home.

Notice the slab insulation, and the dual drainage pipes for separation of black and graywater for future garden reuse.
