  Movable Kiln
« on: June 06, 2004, 05:43:54 PM »
   I would like to build a sola kiln, but I don't have my mill-lot too well organised yet,so I'm not sure where everything should go.I have plans for an 8x12 ,my question is,instead of putting it on a permanant foundation,could I put it on 6x6 skids? The plans call for styrofoam insulation in the floor,and fiberglass batts in the walls. Would not ridgid foam work ok throughout?
  It's pretty obvious I don't know much 'bout kilns,so any ideas would be a helo.

Yes you can make you kiln moveable when I built mine we put it on 5 x 12 white Oak skids. we use joist hangers to fasten 2 x 8 between the skids put plywood on the bottom added bat insulation then plywood for the floor.

Some pics. of my kiln.

hate to point you to another website, but here it is..

Dr Wengert is pretty knowledgable and has always responded back to e-mails specific to your question.

Give it a whirl..

In our area a Portable Building is exempt from property tax. Just something to think about.  ;)
