That's nominal 180mm dimensional lumber. Must have had it flown in from the UK.
Thanks, Todd. That's just RocketEngineers basic design. I happened to have 2x12's laying around. Way overbuilt. Makes the 300 look small, lol.
The only lighting on that tank is a PAR 30 bulb in the ceiling fan.
I may go with a 2x7 as the main supports front and back on the top, which by the design states it's more than enough to go without the cetral bracing, as you say. Not sure shy though, I still plan on plumbing to the basement- I may put my sump back into my newer, larger, taller stand- I'll get over 6ft of head height back, and could then go with my durrent RP. Still thinking aobut that one.
I think the 2x7 question was for me?
I measured them. They actual measure 1.5inches, x 7 and an 1/8inches.
I had them when I was doing my shed build. Most all of the lumber was off CL for cheap or free.
Here's the main boards I picked out of my scrap lumber pile.
that's the shed I built last year also, the enclosed part is 8' x 12'
ok they are probably finish 2x8s lol. Anyway sounds great!
Planning on cutting the boards tomorrow on my neighbors table saw.
Kinda can't wait! Get this party started!
More suspense, for me anyways...
Lumber is cut, and I've bought the deck screws, clamps, and building adhesive. I'm going to clamp, glue and screw, oh boy.
Go Todd, go Todd, let's get jiggy with it lol
