Outdoor Kitchen Legal Requirements? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Outdoor Kitchen Legal Requirements?

    I live in Alberta & am planning an outdoor kitchen build. Do I need to go to the city for approval on this & get some kind of building permit, or can I just have at it?

    No one on this forum can answer this definitively for your city.. for that you actually have to ask them.

      My guess is that anything that involves plumbing and electricity will need a building permit. A simple freestanding brick oven can pass as a masonry barbecue, but an outdoor kitchen will need formalities.

      Building anything without a permit can bring on problems with insurance, and resale of the property. You're always safer to get a building permit.

      If you speak with someone in the building department informally, and they say "sure, go ahead" be sure to make careful notes of who you spoke to and when. It could save problems later on.

          My knowledge of Calagary building bylaws suggest that you will not need a permit.

          Having said that, I strongly suggest that you visit your local building department and talk with them. Both for the reasons Dmun outlines and for specific information with respect to setbacks from property lines and buildings.

            I've seen 3m quoted as the distance from anything combustible. Seems a little excessive to me! Although I suppose if the back of the oven is 1m from the property line & the oven is 6' deep then its alright, but I don't think I'll build one that big...
