    This is my new open air design avairy. It is made from 14 gage steel tubbing.The top will be screened in 14 gage welded wire with 1"x2" holes. The door is 1" tubbing to save on weight.It is 7 tall by 7 wide by 12 long. It will be tirmmed around the roof.I also plan on a covering to block wind in the winter. With these mounted on bricks or a slab,the will be real safe. I will have them for sale too.

    Here is an octagon cage I decided to build. I just finished a iron fence and had a bunch of short pieces. It came to me and poof, a cage! I'm gonna do the roof in wooden shingles and its getting 14 gauge screen. This one is going in my flower garden.

    I have Shamos, Thais and Asils. They are not cheap and I'm tired of loosing them to coyotes. Now they stay inside unless we are out with them. I have more in the works right now just like this aviary.
