Step 1: Build the Frame
Step 2: Building the Sides
After some trial and error I was able to miter cut the 62.5 degree for the roof peak.
Step 3: Painting
Nothing fancy here. Sanded with 80 grit then a coat of primer.
Step 4: Installing the Floor
Just peel and sick tiles. Makes cleaning up easier.
Step 5: Roof Access
With the way I built the roof it'll be a lot easier for adults to get access to the inside of the roof opened up. I don't really have any plans of what I did here as I just started with an idea with some extra wood I had on hand. Sure you could do it with long hinge but have you seen the cost of those? Doing it this way I was able to cover the roof peak to try and keep some rain out.
Step 6: Roofing
Got an open package from home Depot for half price. Used all but two. I used my staple gun to install and some liquid nail around the edge to help keep the edges down.
Step 7: Building the Run
This ended up being 28 inches tall. Held together with some wood glue and nails. Staple gun was used again to attach the fence.
I wanted this to be able to come apart and my wife found the bolt and screw eye here on some one else's build. It worked great. The bolts are 5/16 x 4" long.
Step 8: Bottle Holder.
This took about ten minutes to make. Sure I could have used something boring but I seen an idea from someone else on here.
