Going to get 2 more wood pallets add to left side(4'w X 8'D), and get an additional 1.5 tons pea, also thinking od adding to right side, and getting some stove size. This is made with 4 wood pallets as base. Basically its 8'x8'. or there abouts.
The lids are made of 1" aluminum frames, welded together, with plates for hinges in corner areas, actual top is corrugated steel roofing. Used screws for roofing with washers into aluminum frame. Light and will bear any weight of snow in winter without collapsing. I hope.
4x4 posts are not in ground, bolted to pallet frames, outter perimiter 2x6 bolted to posts and pallet frames, plywood sides mounted inside perimeter frames and nailed to them. Plus theres one center tie from middle posts to each other, buried in coal in pics.
