Default New guy from west jordan utah with first question.

I have been wanting to build my oven for a couple of years now. I am learning a lot from the down loadable plans, and have this one initial, but sure to have many more, questions.

First.... How close is too close to build to my house? I.e are there guidelines on where to build?

I am planning on building it on my backyard concrete slab about 16 feet from my house. Sixteen feet would be where the center of the oven is.

Hey there! You have many good resources being in utah. Russell aka... UtahBeehiver is the best. I live close by in South Jordan. You should check with the City to confirm if there are any regulations as to how close to your house but 16 ft away from your house is plenty. Russell's oven is only like 10' away. Just make sure you are far enough away from your property line as there may be a 3' setback. But with insulation and everything you could build it right next to your house. Join the SLOB Salt Lake Oven Builders group (link below) here on the site. I would love to get a group together to have a meet sometime but we'll see how that goes. Let me know if I can answer any other questions or if you want to throw your plans by me.

I live in west valley so I am close as well. I have permission from my wife, but we have a small lot. I am trying to figure out the rules for property lines as well. I also have an HOA I must deal with. I would love to join a group. I likely will not build my hearth until the spring.

It is good to see several people from Utah building ovens. I am also in Utah, West Valley actually. I am trying to find the rules of where I can put my oven in relation to my property lines. I was granted clearance from my wife to build the oven, but have not determined what would be allowed from the city, and the HOA. I have a small lot, so I would like to put it as close to the property line as possible to maximize space. I will probably not start until the snow melts in 2015, so I am in my planning phase.

An oven group here sounds great, I will head over to the link provided and try and join.

Hey Roland,

Russell here, glad to see another Utah build. I am here to help anyway I can. Post or PM either way but I suggest a post then others can chime in. My opinion is only one of many and there is a lot of good experience out on the forum from all over the world. If you have not see it yet, here is a link to "some" of the better documented builds. The FB plans are a great baseline but it is dated and many new innovations have evolved since its publication. Peruse the Forum for the latest and greatest ideas.

Welcome Roland!

before you start, make sure you know that your existing backyard concrete is thick enough to handle the weight of the oven. Backyard concrete pads are usually designed for the weight of people. I had to reinforce my existing backyard concrete before I started. Good luck! You are in the right place!

I poured my pad ten years ago over pea gravel and used a six bag mix pumped in from a grout pump. The concrete is at least four inches thick and at most six. No rebar. It has had a hotub on another part for a year now with no movement. But still who knows how strong it really is. Needless to say it would be strong enough for a car to drive on it.

I am sixteen feet from the property line and sixteen from the house. When i built my shed the city said to be six or eight feet,i cant remember exactly, from the house and six from an ajoining property line. That was per fire code. I ended up building it three from the property line, but i dont care because the closest house is at least thirty feet away from that.

As for the oven I am more concerned about the smoke involved during cooking and how far from a house is good enough to keep it from seeping into the house, or being good for fire code.

Just my thoughts.

Keep the replies coming.

I am planning on getting med duty fire bricks from the brick yard out here in west jordan. They quoted me around 1.60 per brick. They also tried to discourage me from building my oven and just buying one of their firerock brand ovens. 1800$ no thanks! Plus i dont think their oven materials are the right mix for an oven. They use the same stuff to build their fireplaces. So I thought it would be more of an insulator, and not a retaining material for heat. Who knows.

Use "Go Advance"
Then "Manage Attachments" - Normally about 4 pics is max. depending on pixel size.

Sound like you went to Interstate Brick. $1.60 decent price.

Here is a list of local places I got my materials

1. Fire clay - Interstate Brick - abt $10 per bag used abt 1.5 bags
2. Quartz sand - Sutherlands - used abt 2 bags for homebrew.
3. Ca Si and FoamGlas - EJ Bartells - Thermo Gold 12 (Ca Si)
4. Ceramic Fiber Blanket - NPS - but this is hit and miss place to find, EJ Bartells carry CF blankets.

The rest of the stuff is big box store stuff.
