I suppose if I had to I could pick mine up....run straps under the sand with a water jet and pick that sucker up.....Transfer to new sand really slow.

It would need to be able to pick up a lot of weight. 5-8 ton?

Well guys I haven't posted in a while but I think I know what the plan is. But before I tell you I should say I'm the newest father on the block. My wife gave birth to our first. I've been busy with the new baby but during my time off from work I finished my planter boxes. So Russell if you have some good seed or recommendations on tomato plants I am ready to plant!

Now to the oven. I think I will get a 10000 lb forklift and lift a side and pull it forward and do the same with the other side until it is in place. Hopefully during the move I can keep it as level as possible. I think that is really the best option. I had a friend of mine stop by who builds bridges and he said that is probably the best option. My neighbor has one of these forklifts at his work so we are going to see if we can get one over to my house. Let me know your thoughts and comments about the boxes. I think the forklift option will be the best since it is doubtful I can get a crane back there.

My only suggestion on moving the oven is if possible, to move it all at once, rather than picking up on side at a time. If that's not doable, then do what you need to do. Also, try to have a nice, firm level new base for it. Also, congrats on the little one.

I would like to move it all at once but I don't think it will be possible. It weighs at a minimum 15000 lbs (the Slab is about 3 yards of concrete= 12000 lbs, the cinder block=3000+lbs and the counter slab which the oven will sit on and filled cores= 4000 lbs before water weight.) It would be difficult to lift and move all at once at close to 20000 lbs.

I understand. I hope it all goes well for you.

Your planter boxes look great. Hope your moving goes well. If you haven't started already have you thought of maybe a house moving service to jack and move your project? I don't know what that cost would be but for sure they could move your project exactly where you want it to be. Saw on Discovery Channel where a company jacked up a brick lighthouse and moved it back hundreds of feet to save it and it came out perfect.

Congratulations to you and your wife on your new one and best wishes!!

Jim

Well Yesterday I got together with a neighbor of mine who was wanting to build an oven on his own. I was scanning the classifieds 2 months back and found a WFO which used to be in a restaurant for 1500. Suggested it to him and he bought it. Yesterday was the first day he fired it up. It got upwards of about 1100 degrees but didn't hold that heat since he doesn't have it insulated or anything but the oven was in two pieces. Thought I would share its design since it is a unique oven. All of the bricks are fixed on the inside and only the floor needed to be lied down. It is a very large oven about 5'x5'. It made me jealous that my oven wasn't done yet. But then again all he had to do was bring this to his house and get it assembled with a mini-X.
