    I just found a 10x10x6 dog kennel off of CL for $65!! [​IMG] I need advice though...I already (1) 6x4x4 kennel at home....I need ideas on if & how I might could attach them to each other to make more room for their run? I know the heights would be different but I could wire them together somehow?? ....any ideas?? Thanks!! [​IMG]

    Congrats on the great find.
    You can buy clamps to attach the panels together at the hardware store. I think you could turn all the panels to be 6 ft tall. Be careful where the rounded corners come together. A few weeks ago I watched a possum lie on it's back and wiggle through the corner of the run. Also chickens can get through some small spaces.

    DARN YOU!!! I'm on the hunt for a second one myself and have had no luck!

    Yes, you can get the clamps at Lowes, Home Despot, etc. I have hardware cloth patches on the corners for the very reason Imp cautions against. Also all around the door, and an apron as well (extending 2 feet up the sides and staked in 2 feet along the ground.

    Congrats! I hope I find a new one soon. I, too, am planning to connect the new one to the existing one.

    Quote:LOL! Sorry!! I think the only reason I scored this one was because the ad was very non descript & the man selling it was a bit cantankerous! [​IMG] Fine by me though...but I WILL NOT (yet) brag since I have not seen it yet due to his camera is broken....I have never bought anything on CL and he said it was in near new condition, but I know how that can go!
