Default Re: Stand Dimensions for 42 in Oven

I appreciate it guys. I feel confident enough to start digging this weekend, but still a little worried about how much I can play with as far as width and depth of the stand when I go to lay the course of concrete blocks. , if your stand is 65 in and each block is 15 5/8 in, 4 of them would add up to 62.5 in so did you just have the extra 2.5 inches made in the transitions from block to block with a little mortar in between? I'm just paranoid I make the foundation or the stand too small and then have to add to it or make the oven smaller. Or do you just cut the blocks to get it perfect? I realize I could just make the stand 8 inches to big and account for it with insulation or decorative material, but would really like your thoughts knowing you have completed the job.
Thanks,
John

Suggest you lay out a full size template. If you are planning a dog house enclosure I think you're too small.

John,

Are you limited by space or do you just want even blocks without cutting? You can always add a 1/2 block CMU (8x8x8) into the base design (they are readily available), gives you some wiggle room and not have to add a full CMU. PS if you cutting bricks for your oven, cutting CMUs are not that much different.

As Russell pointed out it's easy to add a half block, and if you're cutting you should find 6 by 8 by 16 inch blocks around as well. If you're uncomfortable, then unless you have some building area space limitation, size up a bit..

I found a listing on my local Craigslist for Mineral Wool Batts R19. They are 47" by 23". It says 800 sq ft total for $220. Is this a good deal and how many would I need. He says I can by as many as I want?

John, I can't tell you if it's a good price or not, but as I remember I used bales or what ever they're called.. My batts were R19 47" by 15" if I remember correctly, but I think the extra width wouldn't have been a problem.. When you price them, make certain to check the ceramic blanket price.

Just because..

Chris
