Arrange for intake and overflow pipes to meet local conditions. Plate 24 shows a design for a circular watering trough which is very simple in concrete construction. If it were not for the more complicated form work, the circular shapes would be built more frequently, because of the attractive effects which can be produced. Lay an old wagon or buggy tire on the ground and mark a line on the inside of the tire. Excavate the inside of the tire to the depth of 6 inch and place endwise three 1 inch x 2 inch stakes about 3 ft. long on the inside of the tire. Raise the tire 2 ft. from the ground to make the total inside depth of the trough 3 ft., and drive a nail in each of the three stakes under the tire to support it at this height. Fill in the circle between these three stakes with slats or flooring boards set on end and place a nail in each, under the tire, to hold them at the top. To hold them at the bottom tamp a little sand at the foot of the stakes. Mix 1 part cement, 1/2 parts sand and 3 parts screened gravel or broken stone and lay about 4 inch of concrete. Place the reinforcement as described for rectangular concrete troughs, running it up on the sides so that it is about 2 inch from the outside concrete surface. After placing the reinforcement, the rest of the operations are the same as for the rectangular concrete troughs.

The inside form may be made by sawing a barrel in two, nailing each of the barrel staves to the head of the barrel and removing all but the upper hoops. The remaining concrete construction is clearly shown in the drawing. Allow for intake and overflow to suit local conditions. This type of trough will take about 32 bags of cement and a single load of sand and gravel. A single load of sand or gravel is considered as 20 cu. ft., or 3/4 cu. yd., and a double load is 40 cu. ft. or nearly 12 cubic yards. Treat the finished concrete as in the rectangular trough. The waste water receptacle shown on this same plate is constructed in a very similar manner to the circular trough, the great difference being that it is sunk in the ground further and has a cover and drain. The concrete cistern itself can be made by using a cut off barrel, but no outer form is required as the earth concrete wall, if fairly solid, will retain the desired shape if care is used in the excavating. The bottom of the concrete cistern slopes toward a drain covered with a strainer. The water drains through a 4 inch outlet pipe, as shown. The cover is cast in a tire of suitable size and reinforced laterally with 1/4 inch iron rods crossing each other at right angles and covered with poultry netting. A slight depression is made in the middle where a ringbolt is inserted to lift the cover by. Place the inlet pipe where it is convenient. Treat the finished concrete as for the rectangular trough.  Plate 25 gives a sketch of a typical set of concrete steps and a small porch, together with details showing the method of constructing individual treads. Concrete steps and concrete stairs are of two kinds; those made in one piece, monolithic, and those cast in separate molds and put into place.

The risers on all concrete steps and concrete stairs should not be less than 6 inch nor more than 8 inch, while the tread should be from 9 to 12 inch, except where it is intended that more than one concrete step should be taken on the tread, in which case 30 inch should be the minimum width. Concrete foundations for all concrete steps out-of-doors should extend below frost line or have a porous base with a drain situated at the lowest point to allow the water to run off. Concrete steps should be wider than the walk or opening from which they lead, to avoid looking cramped, and in order to secure an artistic effect, should have some sort of projection or molding at their upper edge, if possible. A slight slope or pitch is also desirable to allow the water to drain off.
