    Quote:Yup, it will be, and the entire run will be roofed complete with gutters to keep the rain out.


    Quote:I would love to make it bigger, but I am way over-budget as it is....



    We do plan to put a larger run off the back side into the woods some, as an area they can go when we are outside and can keep an eye on them.

    Looks like you have a plan. Nothing like a good plan. It makes every thing work in the end. I draw everything before I build it. That way I can make any changes before I get in to deep. Nice job looks good so far can't wait to see more pics.[​IMG]
