Default Re: Re-bar Required Up Out of Base? What'd You Do?

I tied 1/2" rebar into the slab that ran high enough to include a 90 degree turn to tie the horizontal oven floor rebar to. The rebar didn't cost much and I figured that here in SoCal more unitized shear structure is better. When we're dealing with these ovens we're not talking about much height for the oven weight to differ in momentum relative to the base in an earthquake. This difference is what tears things apart. The stand walls have a minimum of 6" width and most often 8" and in most stands the blocks are woven to create the corners. If I do another I'll add rebar again it's cheap.

After the "big one", you can cook pizza for the survivors.

You are right though, rebar is cheap. Maybe one of the cheapest components of the build
