    First step was to make the run base frame (14x5). Then 1/2 " hardware cloth is fastened to the top side with galvanized poultry staples every 4 ". This frame is flipped over and supported by blocks or whatever so you have access to the now bottom side! 6 three foot 2x4s are fastened from beneath at the corners and in the middle of the long side with screws from beneath. 5' X 6' floor frame is constructed and 1/2 "exterior ply is used to deck this. Attach the floor and frame to the uprights or stilts from behind with 2x4 scraps. Screw four uprights (2x4 s) 4 ' long at the runs corners from beneath.
