    Used 2 x 4's for sides and 2 x 6's for bottom perimeter and ridge at top.

    1" welded wire (wasn't cheap), but I've been having bad predator problems.

    Dimensions are 8 feet tall on sides, 8 feet wide, 16 feet long.

    I built the nestboxes and perches later, and are not shown here.

    Not real fancy, but very pleased with it!

    I love it! Very neatly done. [​IMG] Looks great on the trimmed lawn - like a garden fixture.
