Architect in the House? - 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.

  • Architect in the House?

    My local building department has their hands deep into my project and have thrown a wrench in the works. Here's the deal:

    They want a footing 42" deep x 8" wide around the perimeter of the oven foundation. 42" is frost depth. So for those of you who have built your oven base in a frost depth of 42" and didn't dig a trench, is your oven falling down?

    If I have an architect take a look at the plans for 5" of crushed rock and 5 1/2" of concrete for the base and have a letter that it's structurally sound, I can get by without the footing.

    The other options is to stick four piers 42" down on the corners. Mind you this base is only planned to be 69x 69 with an angle setback at 43" for a corner install.

    Any thoughts?

    Well, well. As it turns out the building department has rescinded their requirements for any additional footings for the oven foundation. It seems they have had a spat of outside fireplaces become unsettled due to not enough support in the foundation. This was the case due to the height of the chimney on their fireplaces. The height on my chimney should be between 2-3'.

    Anyway, I am back to work.

      "The other options is to stick four piers 42" down on the corners. "

      Use three piers. This is statically determinant.
