Bryan,  my design doesn't require much welding, if at all.

You van skip metal containers if you wish. Replacing these with double skin bells. There is tons of solutions.

I would say, go for batch. Forget thé jays.

One barrel above the riser, i count 1.86m².

By the looks of your drawing, i wee two half barrels, so that's a bit less than 1.86, since the plunger tube doesn't go down to the floor. Only the active part is taken into account, not floors.
