I'm in the initial stages of planning my oven. I was talking to a friend and he wanted to know if I'd be putting footings in with my slab. What are your thoughts.

Re: Footings?
It can be more an issue of your local soil conditions than preference. Quite a few of us go with slab on grade. For instance, my oven sits on a six inch slab with no footings. However, I'm in Arizona where the ground is hard as rock. If the soil were unstable, I would dig down to terra firma and set a footing or piling.
