building P-90 to someday move - 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!

  • building P-90 to someday move

    I live on a double-wide, corner lot, which should give me ample room to build an oven, but the city tells me my side yard is in fact "front yard". Still, I am going to build an oven, and I certainly don't intend to fire it 20 feet from my neighbors bedroom window when it should surely be on the other side of my yard.

    I'm pretty sold on the P-90 kit, although I'm waiting to hear back on the shipping estimate. My big questions are:

    1) Does the oven have to be cemented to the foundation stand?

    2) Any nice examples of steel stands?

    3) Any examples of attractive mobile designs?

    I built my oven on a steel stand. I know that I would probably move within the next 5 years as my family outgrows the small house we currently live it.
    Its not a 'mobile' oven, but made to be moved with a fork lift. When the moving day comes, I'll lift the oven off the stand with a fork lift and place it on a flat bed truck.

    The oven is a 36 inch brick oven. The stand will hold a 1/4 cord of wood.
    Attached are some pics.

        nothing is difficult or impossible once you get your mind around the situation and think it through.

        I would go that next step and lift the whole oven and base and move it to the new location, provided you can get access with the equipment. Even if it is difficult, pump trucks can ease the problems with a little care and a few mates helping.
