Trampoline Frame Calf Shelter
My wife and I needed a calf shelter but we didn't want to spend a lot of money. My brother Randy was throwing out a 14-ft. dia. trampoline frame so I cut it in half and used it for either end of the building, creating a 7-ft. high arch. The ends are secured in concrete. The frames are connected by braces that run the length of the building and fasten to the original legs on the tramp frames. We then bent and screwed 1-in. pvc water pipe to each trampoline half frame and then bent two more for the middle building support. Finally, we covered the frame with 10-ft. long sheets of tin that we screwed to the bent pvc pipes. (Terry & Debbie Benoit, 1077 Bobcat Circle, Orange, Tex. 77632)
