Yep that's for sure a start. Never built one of those so will leave advice to others that have done so. What are the measurements and what are you putting in there when done?

No pressure treated lumber? By the time your pond gets balanced you'll start having rot issues

Little bit of progress. Just need to treat it all now before doing the out side hopefully line it next week and start filling it.
