In the event you have a large tree fall on your wood burning oven you may find this blog helpful
The basic situation is that a tree fell on our carport (see earlier posts about that)
Being steel lined, the oven itself is virtually indestructible. The brick base on which it sits, not so much. So how to build a new base under an existing 3000 lb oven? What follows is our solution.
Here you see the basic structure. We are rebuilding the carport at the same time. Hence no roof just yet.
Damage to the base is wide spread
Found these jacks on Amazon for $10 each. Rated at 6000 lbs , so 3000lb oven/ 6 jacks no problem.
Blocked up the jacks and demolished the wall
In the best Harry Potter tradition
Remember to "swish and flick"
And you have an oven floating in space
This really only took about 3 hours to do
