Default Re: Installation on uneven surface

I doubt that you would find a structural engineer anywhere that would advise you to place all that weight on a pre-existing 3 1/2" thick slab, w/so many unknowns. You asked for advice and you got it. I guess you were just going to keep asking until you got the "opinion" you wanted. That's all any of us can give and you've gotten a few. Good luck w/it. Personally, a customer couldn't pay me enough to build on a slab like that. For no amount of money. I'd walk away and tell them so, as I wished them well.

NCMan, I wasn't trying to fish around until I found an answer I wanted. Since I'm probably the least-experienced person on the forums when it comes to concrete, I was just trying to hear all the opinions. I'm planning to try to get a hold of the previous homeowners and see if I can talk to the company that poured this concrete so I'll have a better idea of what I'm working with. I'm still debating even putting the oven there since it would only accommodate a fairly small oven (< 30") when all is said and done. I don't have too much land to work with, so hopefully I can figure out something that works. I appreciate all the opinions on here and the help I've received, and I don't plan on doing something dangerous on a whim.
