      Thanks Deejayoh and Fox,

      Deejayoh, there seems to be a lot of steel but it is light gauge and the cross braces are only there to get it all nice and square, as you will see later there are 4 doors to go on so that does not leave a lot of solid area

      Once the the frame was finished it was time to go to the paint shop, all the internal area was painted white and the external area was painted black including the underside of the trailer where we installed a metal stone guard to protect the 2 x 115litre water tanks (one for fresh water and one for grey water)
      Then it was back into the the factory for the external cladding and hanging the doors

          Thanks Steady,

          Hanging the doors and fitting the external cladding was quite a job, we still had to do the kitchen / sink area the local councils requirements were pretty extensive

            To partition off the kitchen sink area we used the same material as the external cladding but in 2 sided white, then there was a folded stainless sheet used to set the sinks in.
            We then drilled holes in the floor for the waste water plumbing to the grey water tank

              Whilst waiting on the fabricating to be finished I started working on an insulated door. Way back before the oven was assembled I traced the inside of the door arch onto a piece of ply so that later I would have a template to use to make the door (if it was a brick oven then I would use the door form as a template)
              I traced the template onto two 3mm steel plates to make a sandwich with 50mm fibre board of insulation I then cut a strip to go around the outside and welded the seems together
              I then added the handles and a couple of pad bolts (to hold the door in place while traveling) It was now ready to be sand blasted and painted with high temp paint

                G'day
                sinks and waste water tanks and fresh water tanks certainly complicate things. But it has to cover all the health aspects I suppose

                Measure twice
                Cut once

                  Thanks Dave,

                  Yes the authorities set a high standard that has to be met before they will give you a permit to operate, for instance I only put in 2 sinks but they actually require a separate sink for hand washing so I had to pull out the 2 sinks and replace them with 3 sinks.

                    Finally the trailer was ready to come home to be fitted out, plumbing to the tanks and sinks, electrical for power to fridges and hot water,12 volt power to the water pump and lighting, putting in the refrigerators working out how to secure everything etc.
                    And finally getting it inspected by the councils health department and registering with the state government to operate as a mobile food vendor
                    We past all the requirements and were now ready to start trading, this whole journey has taken many months to complete

                      A very tidy unit.
                      I went to a wedding on the weekend with wf pizza, the three ovens (on 2 trailers) the caterers had were truly agricultural compared to yours
                      Cheers,

                        There is a lot of things to think of when you set up a mobile oven, like blocking off the flue while mobile, dough storage, work benches, wood storage etc. the list goes on

                          The next thing was to have an awning made to go over the prep, cooking and serving area fortunately for me I have a friend who has an upholstery business and makes the type of awning I needed
                          I drew up a plan and he used his expertise to make just the right thing he also made side curtains for those windy days and made a banner for the front that I had sign written

                            After some trial runs we were ready to start business, it took a lot of planning to get everything right to make this a fully workable mobile pizzeria.
                            And part of that planning was make sure everything fitted in the trailer and making sure it did not move around while traveling
