  • Newbie in Georgia

    Hello,

    My name is Victor and I am happy to have found this forum, such a great wealth of information. I live in Canton, Georgia, originally from NYC. My parents were both born in Italy and we have always talked about building an authentic WFO.

    I would love to start this project soon and look forward to this adventure!

    The first thing I am trying to find out is if a permit is required in Georgia (Cherokee County) for pouring a reinforced concrete slab for the WFO. I read somewhere that it is not required if the slab is not attached to the house or deck.
    Any builders from Georgia?

    Just heard from the building dept and they said no permit is required if the slab is uncovered. Hmmm, wonder if an enclosure for the WFO would be considered "covered"...

      In my town a slab/structure of less than 120 sq ft does not require a permit. And 15 ft from combustables for a BBQ grill - nothing defined in legislation for a WFO.

        Dumb question:
        Are live, very tall trees considered "combustibles"? I assume yes

          I would think yes if in front or over the oven. I would check with the local fire department.

            They sure are, cut them up, let them dry and then chuck em in the oven.
