Step 4: Construct and install heat lamp stand This ended up being the most simple design... there is no base. The two posts slide through a hole in the chicken wire. This allows me to remove the stand when I want to open the doors/clean the brooder. The bar across the top has a hole drilled into the edge. It isn't perfectly round or straight so I can adjust the height easily by moving the cord and sliding it into the groove.
