Built it all by myself with a little help from Mother.
Made with old pallets (ok they was long pallets),2x2"timber,old conservatory roof panels and wire netting.
Cost me approx£45.
It is tall enough to walk in,fox proof as since i took the photo i have put a path of bricks around the outside where there is 12" of wire netting on the floor to stop foxes digging.
Also have since added more roosting perches and a raised feeding platform. :)

Hi Bexy.

Are you aware that hex chicken wire isn't fox proof ? They can chew straight through it  :ohmy:

You need welded mesh, minimum 19g and 1" sq. or smaller.

this is a great way to see all the different tpyes of houses an runs that  are out there  :D

It's great isn't it?!  (maybe i'm just nosey :wub:)

I never did get out into the garden today, think I might nip out now for a bit though, just got the boys to settle reading in bed and the sun is shining.  I shall get a deck chair out, a notepad and pen and start sketching some ideas.  Thanks for the advice about making panels. 

Keep the pic's coming, and the advice.  Love this site!
