Thanks guys. It wasn't easy took me almost 2 months to get to this point. It's all worth it when I walk in my front door and see this thing. I love it I can't wait to stock it

Sorry to hear about that incident. Unfortunate. But on the bright side: no livestock lost!! No water damage.... and, your the 2nd time around you'll be much more proficient!
