Plans for field shelter
« on: March 23, 2010, 09:39:51 am »
Has anyone got a link to plans for a field shelter for cattle - a small one for two animals?
I thought of a frame of 4"x2" timber covered in galvanised sheeting but wonder if that would be strong enough and if the galvanised sheeting might be dangerous.
I'm thinking of a moveable open shed that I could turn against the wind.
Has anyone made such a thing?

We made a 24foot x 12 foot shelter using 4x2 and galvanised sheets  then lined the inside with marine ply last summer. It has stood up to the winter remarkably well. The only issue we have is our Shetland Tup likes the noise it makes when he butts the tin.
