I've been wondering about this for some time. I know there are zoning laws to contend with. There is also the issue of ventilation and filtering, due to lead particles. Does anyone know what the specifics, and limitations are to building a range on private property? I live in the Phoenix, Arizona area. It would not be inside the house, I have no basement or room with the appropriate length, but would he a new structure that either stood alone, or shared a boundary with the existing structure. Had anyone done this, or know someone who has? Any ideas are welcome.
