Instructions for Measuring Dog/Livestock Rooms 1. Make sure the room is fully finished including coving, epoxy flooring, sinks, spigots, drains, facility automatic watering (if applicable), etc. 2. Check for any obvious obstructions such as columns, drains, trenches, sinks, spigots, facility automatic watering, and other misc. items that protruded from the walls, ceiling, or floor. 3. Make a sketch (as large as possible) of the room that includes all of the observed obstructions. 4. Measure the room noting measurements just about the floor, about the middle of the wall, and one up high. This will establish how plumb the room is. Make sure to include measurements to obstructions and especially locations height wise of items that could interfere with runs. If it is possible, a corner-to-corner diagonal measurement is also helpful especially in the case of a small room where we might run into space problems. 5. Make sure to measure trench locations, widths, depths, and distance from wall (where applicable). Also measure for floor slope. Using a 2' level, place one end of the level at the joint of the wall and floor and move the other end until the bubble is centered and showing level. Use a tape measure to measure between the second end and the floor surface. Do this in several places along all the walls so that if there is an excessive slope it can be accounted for with longer or shorter leveling legs or other adjustments. Simply reverse this process if the floor slopes from a high spot (such as a drain) to the wall.
