Build the Mini Pump House
The mini pump house will be a box with a sloped hinged lid. I made some walls with 2×3’s and 1×8’s. Then screwed these together. And I’ll add an exterior grade plywood bottom.
And I can cut the end walls for the sloped top. I stained the box and added a top from plywood and attached it with gate hinges.
Cutting Slope in Side Walls
This plywood has a synthetic roofing felt tacked on then corrugated panels attached.
We temporarily set this box in place to see how it fits. And that’s pretty much all the carpentry work done.
