      PSKoi - Build in Thorntown Indiana

      We have relocated to Indiana and this thread will document the build of the new PSKoi facility. It is going to take a little time to start setting things up but I do have my new office phone numbers.

      You are living the Dream. I look forward to seeing it unfold and being captured in photos.

      Is it cold there yet?

      The idea, at this point, is to take off the front of this building, with the roll up doors, and attach a greenhouse structure like the one in the second picture.

      Could you just leave the doors and add skylights ?

      Why would I do that? I am doing this because I want to add another 1500 square feet to the building.

      Coffee! You should be alright. You normally get storms in a teacup.

      That's the same thing I worry about every day. Good luck with the new build, Russ!

      The layout for the greenhouse has changed. The floor plan is 45' x 60' and the top rows of tanks are about 1,500 gallons each. They are 8'6" x 11'. I joined two together so that the area around the heater can be used as open space and accommodate a bathroom. The double line, with the squiggly line, is a 13" wide floor drain that runs the length of the greenhouse. The four larger tanks are 11' x 19'6" and are 4,000 gallons each. The small tanks have two bottom drains and the larger tanks have four bottom drains and they will feed a Red Label RDF and SS showers with Momotaro Bakki House media.

      We will also be adding on a greenhouse addition to the front of this building that will be 25' x 60'. We will have drive in access in this part of the building as well as two larger tanks, probably about 8,000 gallons each and a sitting area.

      One thing I admired about sugarloafkoi home build was his common walls when constructing tanks.

      Perhaps this doesn't work well for you.

      It looks like Sugarloaf just copied what they do in Japan. That's not me. In Japan they are not worried about total access around the systems as they just need to have as many Koi as they can in a small space. Most breeders in Japan do not have a lot of flat space so spreading out the tanks is not usually an option. I want people to be able to come to my place and have space to walk around and view the Koi. The other thing about the tanks that are pictured here is that they are 3 - 4 chamber gravity flow systems. My systems are going to have an RDF to a shower which is much more efficient and easier to clean.
