Concrete Pad Depth in Mass - 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.

    The standard four inches of reinforced concrete on top of six inches of well drained crushed stone will work fine in almost all climate and soil conditions, if you are building a normal height freestanding oven.

    Footings below the frost line are only used in special circumstances.

      We are in North Providence RI just a bit down the road from you 3 years ago we built our oven, we went down one foot! It may be over kill but we did not want to take any chances!

        4 inches of concrete with reinforcing is plenty. Use something like 3/8 rebar on 8 inch grid both ways with the ends either "hooked" or with 10 inches bent right angles and tied to outside row.
