Default Re: Hello from Minnesota

Are you building an oven only? or are you going to put other things on the slab also? ie patio, kitchen. If its just an oven I would think a perimeter thickened slab with rebar would work fine. If its going to be much more than that then you need to be careful about the design.
I have a cabin in northern MN and I am putting my oven in an outdoor kitchen attached to it. So I opted for footings down 52". And yes it was a major ordeal. Luckly I have a skid steer to dig the hole but it was no fun making the forms. Here a couple of photos.

Saw your build. Niiiice... But I'm "just" doing the oven. I'm in town, and couldn't even get a skid steer into my backyard if I wanted to.

The concrete guy also cut the patio so that when it cracks, it will crack along the scores rather than somewhere random.

Hoping to post some pics soon, I've got the retaining wall and oven drystacked and hope to be pouring soon.
