Foundation Question - 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.

  • Foundation Question

    I'm a couple of months before we move into new house and can start to build...but am learning so much and have started planning my WFO/Grill.

    Attached is model of the WFO/Grill combination I'm planning. Big question I have to start with is the foundation.

    I'm in Wisconsin, so have got to go below frost line, which I believe is four feet. Looking at other folks' builds, like "TheBadger" I see he dug a 4' trench outlining his foundation. I'd like to avoid that as I'm most likely going to have to dig by hand. Also, I'm trying to keep costs down.

    So can I dig several "post" footers and then pour 4 inch slab on them? (See other picture) There'd be gravel under it all and I'd tie it all together with rebar. Is 4 inch slab thick enough? Would I have to got 6" or 8"?

    I've no concrete or masonry knowledge, so have no clue if this would work, or be within code. I'd like your expert opinions....thanks! Craig

    Ironically, after posting this I saw list of similar threads appear at the bottom. Going through them, I came across the wise advice of RTFlorida about soil conditions being most important and to check with local inspectors and contractors. So that'll be my plan...we're moving to small town and the one building code inspector has "office" hours at the town hall/library/fire/police building. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to use a floating slab....
