  • 16 Wood Windmill InstructionsDIY Tower KitCongratulations on purchasing an Outdoor Water Solutions Functional or Ornamental Windmill with a do it yourself tower. Weve tried to make the instructions as easy to follow as possible. Most people should plan to take one full day to cut the wood, build the tower and assembly the windmill head. It may take an additional half day to set up and anchor the windmill securely, run your airlines and diffus-ers, etc..

    We are providing this kit with instructions as many people may want a build it yourself project or may want to use a different type of wood (red cedar, redwood, etc..) We do recommend you use either a pressure treated wood or one with natural insect/weather resistance to prolong the life of the tower.

    Items Youll Need to Purchase or Have on Hand Before Starting:
