Steel Stud Enclosure - 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.

  • Steel Stud Enclosure

    I was wondering what gauge steel studs builders are using, I can only find 25 gauge at HD and Lowes. They seem real flimsy will these work they have no load rating?

    Check the Yellow Pages for a commercial sheetrock contractor. There's one in my very small town; I was able to get 20ga. (side walls) and 18ga. (rafters) for cost + sourdough bread.

    If you want more strength (for a large overhang on the front) you can nest a stud into a track to make a tube. I built for snow load and those 100-year storms that we're getting every 10 years or so

      I used a mix of some 20ga.(dumpster diving from a construction/demo site. And then I bought some 25 ga. from HD and when needed I just set the studs or rafters closer together or doubled them up back to back. I used these for walls and roof that I put cement board on and then the slate roof on top of the cement board. They seem flimsy until you start screwing them together.
      Hope this helps

        go to a pro builder hardware store. they will have 18ga. The 25ga are too small and really meant for indoor building

          Thanks guys I did just what you recommended I went to Stock building supply and was able to get 18 gauge studs and track (big difference) also big difference in the cost of material. This once thought 1500 dollar project is nearing 5k and I don't even have the sides and roof on yet. I hope the pizza is good.
