Sorry, I've been leaving ya'll hanging. Still working on the thing, and will update the little more I done so far with a couple more photos, maybe tonight.

The framing really didn't seem that heavy; kiln dried white-wood stud is actually light. Now if it was yellow pine studs...

When I added the plywood, that when it got HEAVY. Got tired of dragging it in and out of the garage at the end of the day and it been sitting on the driveway under a tarp in-between work sessions. A furniture dolly will be a necessarity to get into the house without breaking my back.

I think I'm a couple inches short of 5 feet, but a 90 gal at 5 feet length on top and a 40 gal at 4 feet length on bottom could have worked better. No 90 gallons included in the $-a-gallon sale that started this thing.
