Default Top tier knock off?

Seems like everyone builds a single tier system with pumps and plumbing. I'd like to keep it super simple with a 3 tier gravity setup. The top tier is obviously an attractive option but the price is a little more than I'd like to spend. Anybody build something very similar?

So you want something like the Blichmann TopTier... do you want to build it yourself and are looking for plans, or do you want one of the custom guys to make you one?

How close of a match are you looking for? Do you want the extruded aluminum pole with the adjustable/locking platforms, or will welded platforms/burners suffice?

how about a 2 tier compromise?
In the grand scheme of things the 150 for a pump isnt the end of the world on even a budget system.
