  • Construction at high altitude

    Does any one know of any changes necessary to compensate for high altitude, I will be building a low dome at about 2800 meters altitude ( 9100 feet ) .
    And Im concern if the thin air will affect the burning ability of the oven .
    Should I change the .063 ration for the door.
    Or feed air to the oven.

    thank you

    I've seen forest fires burn at that elevation - fire is pretty adaptable.
    Check out my pictures here:

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      For high altitude ovens I would follow the basic design, including the 63% ratio. About the only thing I would consider modifying is extending the vent/chimney higher as is done for wood stoves at higher altitudes.
