    I should be finished with the new bin this afternoon and will post pictures of it. I based it on the ones shown here.




    I didn't buy any plans just two sheets of 4x8 plywood and four 8' 4x4 posts. The bin itself is 24" wide and 12" tall with dial ramps. Once I treat it a little to prevent wood rot from the moisture I'll put the brewers grain in to attract the mature flies. I had to build a new one since a raccoon has figured out how to remove the lid on my compost pile/BSF bin (I had no idea how strong a coon could be or that they could figure out how to manipulate a lid) and has been eating all the kitchen scraps we put in there.

    Pictures this afternoon I hope!;)

    I still have to get the hinges for the top and access doors and line the inside before I drill drain holes. Then we go get the feed and it's open for business!
