My "adopted" father, Buck, is really good at coming up with ways to do things cheaply, and he came up with the idea of using tin as underpinning. Not only that, but he found a man in a nearby town who sells reclaimed tin, and he bought it for me. I love this idea. Using recycled products keeps them out of the landfills and is better on the budget as well - a lot better.
|Cutting a hole in the tin underpinning for a vent. The sparks were flying as the metal was cut, and we didn't realize until we saw the photo that there was a full gas can close by.|
The tin came in 20-foot sections, and we simply bolted them on. Easy peesy. We cut out access doors and holes for the required vents, and viola! Simple is better!
