  • Just finishing up my stand

    Hi all. This is my first post. I am in Birmingham, Michigan (US). Evidently I am building the first residential brick oven in this community because the building department acted very perplexed when I described what I was doing. They found the project interesting though.

    I'll post photos in a second. So far it looks just like the Forno Bravo instructions!

    Richard,

    I am curious if your building department required any permits. I too must have been the first in my community to build a residential oven. The planning department scratched their head, told me I didn't need a permit from them and sent me to the fire department. The fire department said it was the most over engineered "BBQ" they had ever seen, told me I didn't need a permit fromthemand sent me to the zoning department. By the time I got to they zoning department they told me they had already heard of me, did not need to see a copy of my plans and I didn't need a permit from them either. So, $0 in permits. Needless to say I kept all of the names of the city official I spoke to in case someone changes their mind down the road.

    My project is just a couple of week ahead of yours. I just finished the solider row. So for so good. Good luck to you,
    Sharon

      Yet another reason to live in beautiful Billings, Montana! Here in Birmingham, they want to charge me $90 for a permit. I think the rule of thumb is: if it needs a foundation it needs a building permit.

      I am on the road for the next couple of weeks in Asia so you will get way ahead of me Sharon!
