    What predators are you trying to keep out. The side walls look like they would let most predators thru already. For flying raptors, you can go with netting overhead.

    Welcome to BYC!
    caveman made a good point.
    Is there a solid roof on top of those posts I see?

    Yes there is a roof overhead but I'm wanting to also enclose an open-air area that hawks could get a free meal.
