Also, with the stone tile in place, about how much do you really think that lid weighs? Did you have to add any extra support for it?
I'd say the lid weighs about 100lbs or so.
No extra support really, it was 1/2" plywood with the 1/4" tile backer board then the tile. I used a tile adhesive instead of mixing mortar. When I get inside I just leave the lid rest on my shoulder while I grab or work on what I need in there. Easy for me at 6'-1" & 290lbs.
I don't plan on lifting the lid except to swap kegs. I might even run my air lines out to the back through 1/2" holes in the 2x4 lid frame... that way my tanks are outside, so I really won't be lifting the lid for anything except to swap kegs.
