I've decided to put a cover over my camp oven area to make it an all weather set up. I've decided to do a skillion roof coming off the back of the house. I have set the support posts with 20mm aggregate instead of concrete to detract from moisture being absorbed into the posts. Has anyone ever used this technique before? I know they do it with electricty poles etc I would like to get some feedback if anyone has any.

Can't offer any advice, but looking forward to the end result.

What a ripper of a cooking area.

I'm with rufzguts. Can't help but love the area. I'm not sure how solid the posts  would be though. If not anchored, the wind may lift them out of the ground when it gets under the roof.  Good luck.
 

Its not burnt. Just really well done.

When I put up a cover over my wood oven the local council stated the holes 5 of had to be 450mm diam and 900mm deep for that reason

Yes that is a concern??? The timber arrived for the framework this week and I'm going to rethink the posts and possibly remove and reset in concrete. Was hoping to avoid a DA as the size of the cover is borderline requiring council approval. Do I not worry as the chances are we won't sell our house and it won't be an issue??? One of my uncles is a commercial builder so I'm getting a bit of guidance from him so I'll keep you all updated with the next move.

You could put up hooks on the roof frame and hang you camp ovens on them and their weight would hold it down also gives you a good excuse to buy  more iron if you  need more hold down weight
