I have an Eglu Cube and an Eglu Classic both of which have attached predator secure runs. Although I love the houseing portions of the Eglu designs I'm not a big fan of the attached runs, they are small with a low profile and I cannot get in and do a real through clean. I'm planning on building a walk in run and was thinking of building the "Stagecoach Coop" design minus the housing portion and using it as just a run. I've been reading up on the design and relize the run is made with some PVC hoops or tubing. I'm not sure how well pvc will hold up in the in the sometimes weather extremes of New England...Hot summers and below freezing winters. Does anybody have any ideas what I culd use instead of pvc that will hold up through weather extremes. I've seen a couple of design where metal tubing has been used, but as someone who isn't very handy with tools I'm not sure I would be able to ge tthe tubing to make the hoop portions.
