    F.A.Q about the Indy 23 Fish Garden.

    Being added as the questions come in. Use the contact page to ask any questions you may have.

    Is the Indy 23 Fish Garden plan set available outside Australia?
    Yes, it is. The plan sets can be posted to you anywhere in the world.

    What about the plumbing kit and the Flat Pack kit? Are they available outside Australia?
    Not yet, but they will be early 2014. Arrangements are well advanced for the kits to be shipped from the USA for our American clients. Actually we have already shipped plumbing kits to the Philippines.

    How much space is needed to build the Indy 23?
    The ideal footprint is 13.6m x 4.7m (45′ x 15’6″) The width can be squeezed down a bit, but it is ideal to build on that footprint. If possible a bit more length in the greenhouse would be ideal to allow space for seedling raising benches, garden tools and the like..

    Are the plans a PDF file and can they be sent electronically?
    No, the plans are printed and bound into a quality book on quality paper for long service life.

    Will there be any help available to answer questions etc during my Indy 23 build?
    Yes, we are setting up a system for plan purchasers to have exclusive access to Murray or a senior staff member to answer questions and help with any construction and/or start up issues.

    What is the price of the Plan Set in US dollars?
    It changes slightly depending on the daily exchange rate, but at today’s rate the US dollar amount is $360.70 US. This calculation is taken care of automatically when you purchase in the shop.

    What clients are saying about the Indy 23 Plan Set:

    Hi Murray
    Just received my Indy plans and they are beautiful, very well presented can’t wait. But that is my 2nd half of the year project and will take some $. But wanted the plans now so can progressively collect things. Tricia . Central Queensland.

    Awesome Murray, have been going through it and am amazed at the detail. Superbly done and put together!! Darryl. India

    It works for me Murray… was just trying to get a ball park figure on build costs. The plans are excellent. It may be a bit of time before I am able to get started constructing but I am going to go through it over the next couple of weeks and try and hash out issues. Ethan USA
