    Its a bespoke container to hold a loosely filled wheel barrows worth of straw filled horse manure. As im unable to find a commercially available box of these dimensions, i have to make it.

    Also its a temporary structure only in use from m.May till l.September. Overwinter its stored under cover.

    I need it to be light-ish (hence the big gaps) but rigid to contain the settling manure.

    After ive grown my squashes x2 and o/d cuccumbers x2 (trailers & climbers super combo). at the end of the season I pull it off and process the settled nicely rotted manure with a riddle. Then use it on my seed beds as a light friable cap layer the following season.

    I like this, will ask Mr M to build me one. He made a 4ft x 20" one in the greenhouse to help with passive heating ( but I have horrible feeling the manure may not be fresh enough)
