    The only thing purchased was the plywood siding.

    Really simple design I just built a frame out of old 2x4's and plywood. Built a lid out of old fencing and scrape wood. The hardware I used I found laying about my garage. Drive around town and see if anyone has old beat up furniture out by there trash. Take it and use the parts and wood.

    I think it's great. Especially compared to what mine looks like. I wouldn't even post a picture of the one I put together from the same scrap crap!!!

    Thanks I think I did a pretty good job for knowing nothing about it.
