  • Hello, I'm back!

    Hello again all,

    I am back, because I am finally in the process (almost) of starting my build. It's been a long time, relatively speaking, for a bunch of reasons. Got busy at work, work has killed basically all internet connectivity to anything (including Forno Bravo), etc, ....

    I decided to have my outdoor kitchen slab poured, as opposed to doing the digging, rebar, etc. myself, and to get started I had to move about 1.5 tons of thin flagstone that I have for walkways about 6 feet, just to get it out of the way. That I did yesterday. This week and next I will get concrete contractors out to estimate the L-shaped thing with the strange little octogan sticking out of the corner, so I can get the basic slab poured.

    I have no clue what is going on with everybody right now, and I really miss following all the builds.

    I hope to be able to spend a little bit more time reading everybody elses stuff, as well as posting my own progress. It's about time I got that octagonal concrete block construction out of my driveway and on a slab where I can build an oven on it!

    Wahoooo! Travis is back!

    Yup, you got a lot to catch up on. And having a contractor pour your foundation for what sounds like a good size outdoor kitchen area is a good idea. It will get you to the fun stuff of the oven build quicker.

    You would be surprised at the people who started & finished their ovens in the last few months. You would also be surprised at those (me) slow pokes who go 2-3 weeks between oven rings and cannot seem to close up their domes.

    Nice to have you back, Dino
