Hi Ute, yes the little oven only works if you turn the selector. I will make sure I leave instructions on this. It was great having you here, as you certainly immersed yourselves in the location and its surrounds. Cheers, Neil

Thanks for that. Our location in 5 acres of native bushland does add to the atmosphere. Using recycled timber for the construction, adds a pleasing glow, making the building warm and inviting.
