Thumbs up Faith In Virginia made a portable oven base

Faith In Virginia's post in this thread (Strong dismountable wooden stand for oven) shows a base made to accommodate a forklift for easy transport (well, relatively easy).

Default Re: Faith In Virginia made a portable oven base

You could always look at rubble foundations. I have one under a fieldstone garden shed im building. I am north of Pitt, so I dug down about 3' sloped to provide drainage filled it up with 6'' of gravel added 4'' black perf pipe and then finished with 2' of compacted gravel. (maby a little less). then i lined the holes with tarpaper, added rebar and poured 16'' of concrete. I just built right on this, after 3-4 years with some of the worse rain we have ever had i have no slipping or heaving. I didnt do it as a pad, its a square, with a smaller square inside, with dirt still in the middle. ( i will eventually add bricks in there for the floor.)
Frank L Wright used these types of foundations a lot. I know its not a moveable one, Maby look at building it modular so you can take it apart.
