Reading back over your build again I see you used pond armor. This is new to me. Do you use more coats on the seams?
Did you put it right on the wood without sealing where you connect the walls together and the bottom?
One more question, what did you connect the framing together with?
Thanks for sharing!
Hi, i glued all the seams than gave it all one coat of pond armor right over the wood than used 2” strips of fiberglass mat overlapping the corners by one inch and used the pond armor with a brush instead of fiberglass resin to adhere it..waited 24 hours than sanded with 60 grit and recoated it (light sanding between coats, i did 5).
All joints were put together with 2.5” screws 5” apart and 4 lag bolts per side on bottom 3 on sides.
