Please use full 2x4s. We made the two by two and they have sagged and twisted terrible. I have had my run for two years and am thinking about putting the 2x4's in to reinforce the top. The chicken wire flexes and with wt on top really goes down, and stays down. I have replaced part of the top already with the hardware cloth. If you do not want to use hardware cloth use the welded 2x4 wire. At least it keeps out the big critters and the flying hawks etc. It will not keep out a weasel or rat though. Neither will the chicken wire. Gloria Jean
I will post some pics next week, but just picture the one in this thread then studed out with 2x2's 16 inch on center. You could have a party of 5 on that roof with no issues. Its a brick crap house and cheaper than the hardwire. jmho My roof trusses are 2x2 as well! lol this thing has no give soild as a rock.
