I'm looking for cheap square footage for a little hay storage but mainly as a barn for my sheep.1 3/8" fencing top rail is easy to find from local suppliers. Obviously, the hoops would need to be closer together(2' centers maybe?) but I would really love to hear from someone who has done it.
We're in southcentral Kentucky where I've only seen 12" of snow twice in my life. So, when we do get a big snow it wouldn't be a big deal to go out and sweep it off.

You do not have to pre-drill when screwing through the metal panels into the metal pipes. The self tapping metal to metal screws can go right through the panel and the metal pipes. You can pre drill if you want to through.
