    Well,, at 6x2 feet, it will hold my five little ones when feathered out for some supervised yard play a couple of weeks, but after they get bigger, they may have to take turns. My yard is odd and I needed the smaller size for moving about. I am finishing up a write up with pictures and some illustration drawings and should have them done in a couple more days, still deciding on a real door, or a net flap with velcro, I may get lazy and do the velcro flap for a quick get ready!
    The nice thing about this is it weighs very little, and one of the images illustrating the stability of the construction shows my finger holding up one end as a shadow, and the shape staying firm[​IMG]
    It is also very easy to scale up in size for a larger footprint.
