make sure you anchor it to the ground or it will fly away in a decent wind. I have a 30x18ft and its anchored in cement have building pics if you want.

Sure I saw this somewhere on here as well but just can't remember where.

Regards

i was just looking at that very one on ebay.ie from ashbourne ,it sounds too good to be true after looking at prices else where,i wonder how strong the plastic mesh is,and the poles ,does any one here have one already?
it certainly seems a bargain,i`m sorely tempted to get the same,instead of paying around 900,

There can't be too many fields between us, my postal address is Enniskeane,

although I live 3 mls from Copeen and 3 miles from Castletown, Farranmareen is the townland. Maybe you'll put me on the guest list for the grand opening Laughing

Funny you should live on top of a hill, so do I. Your only 2 or 3 miles from me but which road connects us I wouldn't be sure, suffice to say if you were coming from Beal na mblath, turn left directly opposite Bengour pub, follow the road around to the first crossroads, take a left and I'm at the top of the hill.

That link for the poly house I thought was a good one and possibly very cost effective, probably suitable for alot of sites but not for mine because when it blows up here, boy does it blow
