  • Location/foundation advice please

    Hi all,
    New to this forum, am considering building a brick wfo but am having trouble where to locate it.

    In the attached picture, I was going to deck around the small outside shed, but am considering knocking this down and putting the oven here.

    Questions:

    1. As you look at the shed, it is w.100cm (40") x d.120cm (47"). Is this a suitable footprint (I can extend a bit to the left, but not forward as it would interfere with the other shed door)?

    2. The base is already very solid, if i knock the shed down how much extra foundation would this area require (can i just build it up ever so slightly to level it out)?

    3. Is it safe to have it backing onto a wooden fence?

    4. How much smoke might be produced from this oven (thinking of neighbours)?

    **EDITED** - I have just seen from the instuction pdf that the 47" depth will allow for a corner oven, so this rules out my first question.
    Any other advice/suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks.
