Permit... - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Permit...

    Just talked to the county planning office about a Casa2G80 on Cucina stand install in my daylight basement and and it seems to be getting more and more difficult.

    The first person I talked to said I would need a mechanical permit for the flue and that is all. Then I started emailing back and forth with one of the plans examiners to ask some questions about the flue and he is saying I probably need a building permit. I sent him a copy of the install manual and now he says "more than likely that a building permit will be required" and I need to submit a site plan, floor plan and structural drawing plans with my permit application.

    Now the floor plan I get, but what's the deal with the site plan? I'm not adding onto the house. I'm not affecting anything on the lot outside of the house.

    I'm assuming the structural drawing plans are for where the flue goes through the wall to the outside chimney??

    Seems like I get a different answer with each question I ask. Maybe I should just build this oven outside. hahaha

    Anyway... just venting here. haha get it... venting... haha

    Oh Jeff, the fun is only beginning... If you live in the county (as opposed to the city where you would be connected to a sewer line) the they will also want a septic inspection as all new building permits require that the existing septic be "conforming to current regulations". And that any deficiencies be corrected before any permit can be issued.

    Good Luck!

      Take all the information and brochures and every piece of paperwork you have on the oven. Take a few moments and go in person to the permit people. Show them pictures and if they want a permit, find out what kind of permit and what they will be inspecting. Ask for a copy of the codes that will apply to your installation. Then smile and ask for any advice they could give you to make this process easier.

      That should help.

        I'm definitely going down to the permit office in person with all the info. The plans examiner did send me the link to the codes online so I can do some research.

        Yes, I am in the county so thanks for the heads up on the septic... Yayyyyyy.
