Plans are for a 800 sq ft pole barn, with 4 -1000-1250 gallon FT's, RFF, MBBF, and degasser tanks, with sump. I have 100
G PM pump, and 1 HP regenerative air pump on order. Currently have 3 tanks. will allow room for 4th to come on line in barn/fish house. AP beds to follow, not sure on timetable. I Need to make sure I have a ready market for a much larger quantity of produce. Fish are a hobby, but I also have several sources to sell what ever I can produce. Hoping for a few hundred pounds every 6-8 weeks initially. With a .3/gallon rate. Providing I have no problems with those rates, I'll increase production to .5lbs/gallon and then sales permitting, add the appropriate sized rafts and greenhouse. Was actually considering open rafts with shade cloth over plants, but I think the cooler weather here would make this very difficult. It doesn't get cold(below freezing) much here, but it CAN get into the low 20's, and that would be devastating to the produce. Guess I just answered my own question.lol

If you haven't used wiggle wire before to install poly on a GH, it's the best. First time using it, and it's great. The 1 Tom is in the DWC and looks to have a few dozen beef steaks on it so far. It's growing like crazy.
While putting the poly on the GH, I found a large wasp nest. Hand is now swollen to about 30% normal size, and wasps have been "evicted" from the GH. This is not the build for the RAS, it will start tomorrow, but figured it's easier to keep the posts regarding construction together.
Andy Murray just won a great match over Robredo, and the TB Bucs are sucking it up.

Awesome stuff. you can put it up in a few minutes, and take it off in the same amount. Will use it for shade cloth in the Summer.

Have the posts set, 3 walls framed and installed, header beams prepped, 1 truss complete, and other are all cut and just waiting to be pounded together. Hopefully, will get trusses hung and start sheeting tomorrow.

Have tanks cut in half, and bottom drains ready to install. Using 3-4" PVC and stainless shower drains. It was a bit of a bitch getting holes lined up, measure three times- drill once. Going to use 5200 to secure everything in place. I know it's fish safe because I've used it in live-well on boat. Will wait to bolt together until tanks are set on grade and will crawl under tank to hold in place while someone tightens screws from inside tanks. Will leave for 24-36 hours and then can attach pvc pipe and back fill that area.

Unfortunately, they didn't help today building and hanging trusses. The inside has a partially dug hole...just to save me on some hand digging when I set the tanks. Couldn't get the Cat in without making a mess of the hole area. We raised them the old fashioned way...swing them in and push them up with a 2 x 4. lol We got about 1/4 of trusses hung today. Will be back at it tomorrow, and try and get the rest built. We used truss clips/menders, but they are a PIA. Banging in 16 per truss, 41 trusses is not fun. We're making a plywood jig and screwing the rest in. The plates are almost $9.00 per truss, and I figure we can make appx 30 out of a sheet of 1/2" cdx. Cost is close enough, and not having to beat in another 480 of those plates sounds great. Could have saved some $ by having an additional pole in center of building, but this way we'll have an open work area. Try and get some pics this weekend. Hopefully, be able to spend some more time and get dried in this weekend.
