    So first off started by building floor and roof segments
    [​IMG]
    Then the framework was assembled and hardware cloth (1/2in) was run

    Next a roof was added and a back

    The doors were cut and hinges were added and so were latches as so [​IMG]

    And last it was given some legs to get it up off the ground and ready for the birds

    If this is going to be outside and you have any sort of wind be sure to cement that puppy into the ground. I had our wind flip my 300lbs rabbit hutch like it was nothing.

    This is cool and looks easy to build. I was wondering if you could post what you used and the dimensions because I have never built anything. [​IMG]
