Hi John,

welcome here. There are quite a few of us Dutchies over here. There is also a huge load of information buried in the crypts of this forum. Even after years I still keep discovering old posts with useful information.

Good luck with your pit!
Greeting,
Hans

Hi John,
first welcome!  Since you are retired, you will have a lot of time to spend on your new (old) dream   :D
Start spending some of that time reading through several build threads in here  :reading:

Given your skills, you might be able to do everything yourself, but only Methusalem got really old  :whistle:
So, make a choice of things you want/can/plan to do yourself, and (if available) let some money take care of the rest. You can find in this forum virtually all you need to know to start building, either by throwing lot of Euros at it, or build a "poor-man's" pit from "junk". For inspiration, check out @salaxi54 's thread. He does amazing things with "rubbish".

Anyway, looking forward seeing pictures  ;D

Welcome to Viperpits. I hope you will have lots of fun here.

There is a lot of information here. So have a good look at the possibilities.

However, these days I see a lot of new people here trying to re-invent the wheel and are basically working on similar projects rather than teaming up. It is great if you have the skills to design and make your own panels and if for you that is also part of the fun, then by al means continue making your own panels. However you can save time and developing money getting what is already available. For the panels, @Knight here on VP is making a lot of effort, so may I suggest you have a look if what he made can be a solution for you.  :flipacoin:
