Well the outdoor enclosure I have now is 12' x 6' x 3' so I'd like it to be at least that long and wide and preferably taller so I don't have to crouch down. I really love the design of the ebay one but I want it to be like twice as large as it is.
But the more I thought about it, the more I dislike the idea of using wood. Something like this would be amazing but no way I can afford or build that.

Well I haven't set anything exactly but if it was something awesome and mobile I'd be willing to save up $1000 or so to spend on it.
I've been browsing around outdoor pet enclosures (mostly cat ones) but I haven't been able to find anything that I really love and that isn't insanely expensive. I've been trying to think if I could buy the materials for something like the picture and then pay someone to assemble it for me (I don't own a welding torch ).
Wow that looks great! I'm definitely going to look into that. If I have detailed instructions I can probably even build it with my father's help. We have all the tools I'm just not overly skilled with them But my dad is pretty pro. I couldn't have made my current enclosure without him

One thing that I saw while researching is going to lowes and buying the 19.00 screen doors. You replace the screen and use brackers to hold everything together. Can't find the link but you can take it apart and move it in panels.
I was thinking of doing this but figured it would be cheaper just to build it with wood. I'm doing 6 x 6 with 24-25 peices of 2 x 4, or 3's for 3.00 a pop. That's 75 worth wood + 10.00 for paint= 85. I need two different screw types= 10.00. lots of mesh= 100.00 Bricks= 60.00
If I got the pannels, it would be 152 + 2.00 for one peice of wood + brackets to hold everything in place.
