My nephew helped me put this together yesterday. It's a 2-story hog shed. The lower level is an overturned pickup box off my F-250. It works good in the warmer months and provides good shade. But the hogs rooted a big hole under it that is now filled with water and mud. So up top, they have a solid floor with straw bedding, a roof for rain and snow protection and walls on 3 1/2 sides to block the wind.

Good job Dan! That reminds me of my younger days when there were hogs on every farm in the neighborhood, and many structures that resembled yours. I like your blend of available materials - chain link, panels, used tin, and that Ford bed that will stay for the duration. The only thing that looks out of place is the blue gate. And don't think I'm trying to be a smart alec - I've had hogs in the same conditions, and they sold for the same price as the ones raised in the mortgaged facilities.

For the critics, just remember: those that care don't matter, and those that matter don't care.

I just turn an old car upside down in the front yard.

Reminds me of what an elderly (very wealthy) hog man told me once, "I don't ever want nothin' in the way of hog buildings that takes more than 15 minutes to burn down".

Kinda reminds me of a small eatery close by. When it opened, the new owner observed:

"Naw, it ain"t much to look at - but it serves a body well!" The name of the place is "Hog Heaven"!
