Looks good! - Keep 'em coming. I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread as I've been thinking about doing the same thing myself.

That was fast. Looks like you are doing a good job, just don't set the yard on fire.

It has been pretty wet latley. But I guess it would be in my best interest to pass a rake over the ground and have a bucket of water by me.

My design. I had to factor in the space I have available for it and the meterial I have on hand. And also what equipment I have to build it with. I am just designing it in my head as I go.
