Foundation / Stand - Raised deck floor
 
1 Attachment(s)
I will be installing a Casa2G at the end of my deck which is 32" above ground level and have the following questions:

1. Should I put footings at ground level rather than a slab, since wood will not be stored there?

2. What suggestion for use at the deck floor level to support wood storage?

3. What suggestions for non-combustable hearth extension in front of oven to cover wood deck?

Do you have a sketch you can post ?

Either way will work. Is frost heave a problem in Atlanta? If so, the slab on well-drained crushed rock may be easier than digging below frost line.

I just put in a pressure treated deck material floor at ground level on my oven.

This partly depends on whether you're running it past the building inspector. I'd think that for practical purposes a layer of pavers laid directly on the deck would work, but an inspector may call for a slab cantelevered out from the masonry structure as would be done in a masonry fireplace.

I have a similar situation and I plan on putting footings at ground level and building the stand up to my concrete deck level which is about 5 feet higher.
