    It looks great! It's a little taller than I normally build (That's like 2 Joe pens) but it looks like a 5'-5'-7" person can reach every square inch of floor space without having to crawl inside. The big pen is shaping up nicely as well [​IMG]

    You can't go wrong with 1/2" HWC all around! Though, you should keep the wire top pen under cover. Under a pole barn at the least or put a hard top on it.

    Looking good to me, but I'm no expert.

    You can move the pen around the yard to avoid the poo, or move the poo around under the pen. You eventually have to move the poo.
