For the most part yes. I built the two 300 gallon water storage tank stands out of metal strut and then encased it in wood. With five thousand pounds of water weight I didn't trust the wood alone stand with my carpentry skills lol.

Yeah he did mark all the cuts on the pipes for me lol. I'm stoked cuz all this construction and delays are almost done so I can soon start focusing on the livestock. Hopefully I have water in the first tank in a couple weeks.
