    Because this is a "portable" building I didn't need to make any serious footings. I was able to dig four 4.5 foot holes and use these anchor forms. attached to the bottom pipe frame and my building inspector was happy.

    Pretty cool. I don't have horses, but there will come a time when I need a place to put them and I'm looking forward to your progress. Please keep the pics coming.

    Interesting that you need the structure inspected if it is not permanent. Good job doing it right.

    Did you compact the crushed stone at all? The pipe frame is new to me, are those fencing pipes? Or is it a kit ready to go up. It would be great to see the joint in detail, if possible

    Thanks!
