Building the Footings for the Solar Dino



I went to the trouble of concrete fittings because when the swing it used, it might have a tendency to lift the back end of the dino off the ground.

Lay out the footing locations to be at the center of dino legs.  


The holes are about 18 inches deep -- about 12 inches of Sonotube was used in each hole as a form.


The metal straps embedded in the concrete will be used to bolt the legs in place.


This is a bit of work, but makes for a nice solid mount.
