I read another post that you were looking for POD installation opinions. I will be glad to show you mine, installed atop an 18" stud wall. Much more room and much easier entry/exit.
Dean, just back from 4 good night of imaging and last minute prep. The weather has finally changed and the field looks great.
I'll have all the coffee you can drink!
