      No worries, walls happen fast!!! I've built scores upon scores of thousands of em, literally all over this Earth.

    What are you making your walls of once the studs are up. You will have to be washing the slaughter area down with cleaning fluids. Having butchered animals for 8 years it is amazing where the blood can end up. For the walls use concrete board and then smooth it over with smooth cement at least 1/2 thick so it will not crack. Accidents do happen. That way you can also scrub the walls down.

      Backroadmeats FRP=FIbre Reinforced Plastic...
      Quite often used in Commercial Food Processin Plants, an even Biological, or Pharmaceutical Clean Rooms, where I work, because of its various qualities, especially that of bein able to withstand repetitive cleanin/sanitizin, with whatever harsh chemicals that th environment it's installed in, an substances it's exposed to dictate/mandate.

      Mr. Bones. I believe that may be the fancy name for what I call dairyboard.

      This is a fascinating topic, Backroadmeats . Thanks for continuing to post the photos.

      Given mountainsmoker 's comments, it will be interesting to see how the construction is adapted to perfectly suit a butchery operation.

      Thanks for bringing us all along as you build your dream business.

        This has been one heck of a project.. I have had a conditional use permit to have a meat locker for over three years. Had to have the sewer drawn three times to satisfy county.. the the department of health screwed around I was singled out by the department of ag to apply for a grant only to be turned down.. this singled out to apply for another one which I at least got. Man this has tested my very limited patience.. but we are getting close..

        Oh my...Very cool... My wife and I used to own a country house in NW Illinois....We bought most of our meat from a similar type small plant...We loved it...sometimes we'll make the 2 hour 10 minute drive to visit friends and of course pick up some freshly butchered meat.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.
