We've got an 8'x6' old garden shed with the door cut in half and the bottom left permanently open.  We've also got an old single horse trailer which will be their new home soon, and get them used to going in it etc so that one day they will have a little journey to the abatoir :pig:

For the last couple of arks, I've driven four fence posts into the ground for the corners, morticed in four bits of 2x2 round the top and use any old plywood/boarding that's lying around for the sides. Roof is the costly bit with corrugated iron.
