I have a shop bought one at the moment but as I'm getting some more piggies I want to build the biggest one I can. We have a large garden so space is not an issue but not sure what are the best materials to use?

Basically I'm looking for ideas and inspiration, and pics would be fab if anyone has any.

Hopefully by the summer my garden will be like a theme park for piggies :))

A good sterdy wood designed to be used outside is good (but not pine). We used decking to make some piggy houses so I imagine they could be cut to make a run. I've got two different runs with different wires, one is the thick black mesh but I'm not sure where you can get that. The other is the ordinary wire, which is fine so long as you have a secure garden.

A good thing that my Grandad did when making runs and houses, was he secured the wire between two bits of wood so that it doesn't catch on the piggies, and doesn't come away.
