One important aspect of building we learned at the beginning of this project was to have good safety equipment. We realized the scaffolding we bought was only for inside on level ground. So this was as far as we could go on this building without purchasing scaffolding that could be erected on the outside of the building in on uneven ground.We also learned that it takes a minimum of three people to build a building like this,two people to hold the object up securely and the third person to do the welding.

We now have limestone base on all of the roads on our property that we would need to drive the vehicle. We will never get stuck in the deep sand again.

I also needed to calculate the needed 2X4 support framing boards to be added to support the tin.

You can see here how I marked the joints with a magic marker and am now going to glue them together.
First I pulled a string with a level on it from the start of the drain here to determine that it was enough of a slope to drain the water adequately. I then dug a ditch about 1 foot wide and about 22 inches deep. I then placed 1 inch gravel about 4 inches deep underneath the pipe. I laid the pipe on the gravel and made sure it was at a good slope, then glued it in place.
