    My new brooder under construction. Trying to make it look nice since it is going in the dining room area for a few weeks. Let me know what you think. Going to add more trim and paint the trim.

    1/4" plexiglass on front and sides. Thought plexi would hold in heat better than screen or hardware cloth. Plus it looks nice! Put locks on front access panel to keep grandkids and neighbor kids out while we arent home.
