Concept 2

The roof would be a full roof to block rain etc.

Need to emphasize what Gulf mentioned. If you don't you will have one hell of a time screeding the pour.

And, falling on one of those could be a life changing experience . I like the concept drawings of your oven and roof. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished production. Is there going to be a slope on the dove tail at the front of your roof line?

I will cut the kickers yes. So thanks for that.
Also the roof concept is not well planned. Whether I have that front piece sloped that way or not, I am not sure. If it is done like that, it will all slope backward so as to not drop water down etc.

Hey Guys,
I made some progress this weekend. We poured our slab and it all turned out just great. I will post pics on that later.

For today, I finished my Indispensable Tool. Here are some pics.

I followed all of the suggestions out there and then formulated what you see in the photos.
It was pretty easy other than the one weld. I had a buddy weld on the bolt that was ultimately attached to the 45 degree steel angle.

It looks like I am ready.

Time for Block this weekend..
D

Ok well here are the latest pics. The pour is done. We had a great time getting it all formed up and poured. For my two friends who suggested that we cut the stakes down....my brother with the experience wanted me to leave em. That he would work around them.

Which he did. He leaned on them a lot as well. So I guess it worked out.

See the pics.
I am the one in the red shirt, Standing with my brother who helped me make this part of the project a total success.

There is a design in the entry area in the middle which is why the concrete looks different. The area that will be covered is broomed

Time to lay Block this weekend.
