Does anyone have suggestions for using 8 foot lengths of cattle panel instead of 16 foot lengths?
I already have an 8 x10 frame built with two by fours and corner braces. It is very strong. The instability came from trying to attach the panels in the middle at the top of the coop. The whole thing ends up being under a good bit of pressure.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!! I'm working with what I have/can fit on my car!
Here is a picture of what it looked like before it broke (don't laugh, I'm not a builder!)
The panels were attached using three fence staples (3/4 inch--maybe these are too small?) per opening in the panels both at the top Down the center line and at the bottom on both sides. Part of the top started pulling loose and one of the sides. The rest took real effort for me to disassemble so I am not sure why some of it was falling apart and other parts weren't...
