    Hey! Does anybody have any idea how exactly they constructed this run? It looks nice and seems incredibly practical! It also looks relatively easy to build(compared to others I've seen) and I like the idea of a water-proof cloth for the roof and the metal seems more appealing 'cause it wouldn't rot(besides rust..)

    Let me know if you have any suggestions on a relatively easy good-lucking run that you may have come across before. I am doing my homework for the summer ;)


    p.s. I amn't much of a handy man, so I amn't really sure if those angled poles have names like 45degree rods or whatever -> I have tried googling what I thought it could be but couldn't really find anything.. - I thought I'd mention that before somebody tried to flame me :D

    That looks like a "garage in a box" sold at Tractor Supply and I am sure many other places. Then has fencing added.

    yeah that looks like metal frame work, probably a frame like you see used for carports maybe with longer legs and then enclosed with wire. Isomething simular could be built with wood but it would not look as clean and open.

    Duh.. I didn't realize that it was probably a carport frame, and it really does look clean. Another good idea, I love this thread.
