Ok, silly phone did NOT post right...we will try again... We are building a run to our coop approx dimensions 16 x 20. I found some wood at menards that is 2 x 2 and 8 ft long or 1 1\\2 x 1 1\\2 8ft long at 1.09 a peice. Would this be adequate for a base structure? Hubby thinks it wouldnt be strong enough. I want the cheapest but the best run for my money. Very simple, but safe. All connected with chicken wire and added hardwire 2 ft up from the bottom and 2 ft in along the ground to prevent predators. I can see it in my head...but dh has me doubting the strength of it. What do you suggest? What's the minimum I can go here? Advice/ideas please Thanks!
