How many different building materials? - 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.

  • How many different building materials?

    Here is a question for our landscape architects and designers.

    How many different building materials can you successfully use in a brick oven or outdoor kitchen?

    We are using cut limestone for the arches, rough limestone block for the stands, stucco for the walls and chimneys, and slate for the work surfaces and to cap the chimneys. I hope it doesn't end up looking chaotic. Interestingly, we are using no brick in the decoration -- just the oven and fireplace themselves.

    What is the general rule of thumb?
    Pizza Ovens
    Outdoor Fireplaces

    Think about the Bellingham oven...your options could be endless!!!

      Yeah, that was a cool build alright! You never know what someone can come up with in their mind. Endless is a good word.
      Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

        I would expect an architect to say something like "never use more than three different materials"... but then I don't usually like things that are architectorially (architectonally?) styled.

        The instalations I like best have a quirky individual look and lots of loving little details. So maybe the answer could be as many cool materials as possible? Or rather as many as you like?

          I agree with Frances. A person could talk to architects and designers untill they are blue in the face. It all boils down to individual taste and building what one likes and is comfortable with. Wouldn't it be an awful boring world if we all did things the same way
