Cinderblock to cementboard transition - 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.

  • Cinderblock to cementboard transition


    I was wondering if anyone who has done the steel framing to box in the oven has had any problem with cracks in a stucco finish? Someone mentioned having the blocks go up to a certain point and then meeting the cement board will cause a crack along the joint.

    I did exactly as you described and didn't have any problems with the transition. Make sure you tape the gap between the concrete blocks and cement board. Also, tape ALL cement board seams.

    A have a few small stucco cracks in the back of my enclosure where I didn't bother taping the seams (oops).

    Good luck!

      I did the same - no issues -

      I used fiberglass tape at the transistion of the two materials and then used fiber reinforced render to coat the two surfaces (surface bonding cement).

      On top of that I put a final coat of a flexible stucco and it's looking great in year two.
