Naperville, IL code. Foundation question.
 
Hi everyone,

I am planning to start digging foundation as soon as the ground here becomes unfrozen.
Has anyone here had any experience with the Naperville City code regarding foundation for a 36" brick oven? I plan 60X60 slab sitting on D12X42" concrete plugs, with rebar anchored to the plugs.

Many thanks,
Alec

No experience with Naperville City.

Why not pay a visit to your local municipal building department ? Show them what you are planning and ask for advice. In my experience these people are genuinely interested and helpful when homeowners ask for advice.

Good idea, but stay anonymous if you can. :)

Yes, and included with that is checking your brain at the door once your voted in!


Interestingly, here in MN, the land of 10,000 rules, you don't need a permit to pour a slab... of any size! Now, if you get carried away with that statement it may cause you problems. Being a shed builder, I know you can build a shed, usually up to 120 sq ft (sometimes 100 sq ft) without any permits, but you're supposed to stay within setbacks.

I concur that a call or visit to your city hall is the only place you should count on for an answer that truly applies to you.

I pulled this from the Napverville Code located at:

Municode - Search

Residential Code:

5-1B-3: - CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS:

1.

Except for accessory structures (one hundred fifty (150) square feet of floor area or less), a permit shall be obtained before beginning construction, alteration or repairs, other than ordinary repairs, using application forms furnished by the Building Official.

Since most oven structures are around 25 ft2 looks like you are good to start going - though I am not well versed in your code.

Building codes and permit requirements vary greatly.

Most people who run into problems are those who do not check ahead of time. For some reason, the "we don't need no stinking permit" types are usually also those who end up having bad experiences.

As surprising as it may sound, your local municipal building staff are usually more than willing to help out a homeowner that goes to them for information/advice.

Interestingly, here in the land of checks and balances, your local building inspector reigns absolutely. There is no appeal to any higher authority once he rules on an issue. There is a state level building code authority, but their power is advisory only: they can't make your local building department change a decision.

We are getting ready to approach our local building dept.
What would the approximate weight of a 36" insulated oven with a brick chimney on a 65X65" foundation?
Appreciate any ideas.

Regards,
Alec
