If the barn is comfortable and durable, you can prefer frame of wooden beams. Reliable support rail is 10cm. in cross-section. To protect from moisture and insects wood painted or treated with preservative for wood. Select the installation location, it must be the Sunny and desirable elevated position, or have to make a mound to drain.

Mark out a rectangle 1×1,4 meters, trying to drive the pegs, pulled the rope between them, piemeram distance sides and diagonal roulette.
If we’re stationary and durable shower at the cottage, we have to do a pier Foundation. Using a garden auger in place of the pegs make the holes to a depth of one meter. There would be a metal pipe of 1.2 meter length and 90 mm. In diameter. Three parts sand, one part cement and five parts of crushed rock used for fill. Between the pipes rising 20 see peremenam distance.
Protect the structure from moisture will provide the formwork, they need to pour the same mixture as the Foundation. Due to this, country shower exalted above the plot. Not yet frozen columns you want to insert 3 sticks of rebar with a small cross section to 1 cm and 20 cm in length. The expected hardening of the Foundation.
For the arrangement of the drain dig a two-meter pit. Strengthen the walls that the edges do not crumble, economical way to put 6 – 8 junk tires.

Given the instability of weather conditions, you should choose the second option, the existence of a soul in the country is not dependent on sunshine days. To create a structure above the tank, bring down two plates from the bars in the letter V. the length of the bars select the diameter of the barrel. The connection of workpieces are using wooden slats. Design put on the edges of the roof, fasten using the screws. Then just wrap the polyethylene.
Alternatives to the material of the tank is between the light plastic and the rapidly heating metal. Metal tank can be painted dark colors, and it will most likely heat up, lightweight plastic convenient to install. We will give preference to dark plastic barrel 200L. in volume. It needs to be laid on the roof to fix the straps, fix with two nails.
