Check out the plans before committing to the “Woodward” or Cedar Panel 140 gallon DIY kit, then you make the call. Plans are immediately available to download as a .pdf, and you can come back anytime to download again.
The Woodward uses all cedar lumber individually, and will actually end up costing you less because of it.
The Cedar Panel uses cedar lumber, plywood (or cap and base of your choice) and the walls are 30″ x 36″ pre-built cedar panels that you order from homedepot.com with free shipping. (Keep in mind some states do not allow delivery due to importing lumber and potential tree disease). This makes the Cedar Panel the easiest, but also most expensive, to build.
The plans are included with each kit, so you don’t need to purchase separately.
We ask you please not to repost or give these away though. Instead please send your friends here to download their own copies so we can give everyone updates as we further improve them, and to support us so we can keep testing and coming up with more and better designs! (it’s not that expensive after all… 😉
