    awesome!! i made my boyfriend and his dad and i made mine. its 4X8X8 i think only cost aabout $100 to build.


    its kinda funny, we built it at his house and were just gonna pick it up and put it on my truck.... fyi plywood and 2X4s are super heavy when its all together!!!

    we had to call backup needless to say [​IMG][​IMG]
