Default Hi from NH

Hi all:

I went to a pizza party at an Italian friends house. Best pizza I have ever had and thus my journey to replicate this pizza for my family and pizza parties has began.

The foundation has been poured. Thanks to this forum I had a Redi-Mix truck come to my house and had a couple of friends waiting with wheelbarrows. I was originally going to buy the bagged stuff from Homedepot. Ended up using almost 1 yard. Priced the two and it was cheaper to do the truck also oddly enough I called several places and received wildly different quotes. The cheapest place was actually further from my house.

I am now ready to start building the stand. I am glad to move onto the building stage rather than digging. Living in Nh I am concerned about frost heaves so my 6" foundation slab has 5 sorno tube footings. I tried to go 4 feet down on all of them but failed as I hit boulders big enough that I couldn't dig around them and certainly wouldn;t have been able to lift them if I could have dug them loose. So my footings vary from 3 to 4 feet. Needless to say it has been a lot of work just to get to this stage.

For the record I am building a 36" oven. I hope to have the stand, hearth and insulation layer on the hearth complete before the Winter hits.

Thank you for such a great site.
