    Ok, started my run. It will be made of 3/4 inch PVC. This is the rough frame. It will have braces, Tees, connecting each of the ribs. I do not have the ends on it yet, but more pics to come as I move along.

    *of course it will be covered with 1" chicken wire.


    *and excuse the mess in the shop... please.

    That is a really cool shape. Can't wait to see the progress as I'm looking for ideas for a tractor/coop to house 3 banties that I - a girl - can put together and then be able to easily move it around my yard ever couple of days.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Huge Shop, my DH would LOVE that!!! You must not have Wind issues that we do, otherwise I think it's a smart idea to use PVC!!

    Quote:Actually, that is my house too, see the walls to the right? We live in there! Was going to be my shop, and we would have "living quarters" in until we built, but by the time the DW got finished.... well, lets just say I will have my own shop!

    I will be using stakes to make sure it doesnt go anywhere. I live in Oklahoma, we have wind issues!

    Love the shape. We just finished ours yesterday and it's not nearly as creative. This pic is before they put the door on...

    That so reminds me of a church... I could just picture a PVC cross at the top of that... [​IMG]

    Might want to add a cross brace to the bottom, center.
