Re: web site for tank building

I'd be careful with an exterior wall. They are load bearing. You'll want to put in a header and some posts to shore up the wall above the tank. I'd also be a bit concerned with insulation, depending where you live. In my neck of the woods, it would likely get pretty cold in the winter using an exterior wall. I'm a newb with tanks, but I do know construction, and think I would try to find an interior wall to install a tank in.
