Sure, I can take lots more pictures. I´ll start with the ones you mentioned liking the best.

I´ll try and get some tonight or tomorrow morning.

thanks!

incidentally, where do you get your coroplast around here, and how much do you pay for it per sheet? i went to this scary toothless guy last time that has a sign business out of his home, and he charged ten bucks per 4 by 6 footish sheet. is that about right?

We really lucked out. I was paying $14 for a 4 x 8 sheet, but then Loren found some right up by me for $10 a sheet. When you come up, we can go get it, it´s about 10 minutes from my house. But he has to order it, so if you want some, let me know. Not sure if he has teeth or not.....I have some spare chunks for lofts and stuff if you need it.

i must confess...
my name isn´t really agatha.

i know what you´re saying, though.

yeah, i just measured the sheet of coroplast that we mangled the last time we went to pick it up (it didn´t occur to me to think about how we were going to fit it in the car...), and it´s 3 by 6 feet. i´m not sure if i can wait two weekends, though, as i have the 3 boys in a 30 by 45 inch cage right now, and they are starting to throw down quite regularly. i really think things will get better if i can get them more room and another pigloo or two. two of our boys have had torn ears this week. no good, i tell ya.

i might have to go visit scary toothless signmaking man again this weekend, and pay a little more.

You can roll coroplast.

How old are your boars? I find 4-5 month olds to be horrible trouble makers. Fortunately, they grow out of it.

all ball and sweetums (i didn´t name them, i swear) are seven months old, and angel is about 6 months old.

my problem solving skills were not particularly active on the day we got the coroplast, i folded it in half and stuck it in the trunk. i was being a dumbass, which happens more often than i care to admit.

Roll it against the "grain" and put it in your backseat. Works like a charm!

Ah, ok.
I thought it was something about not being honnest. I couldn´t see what I had said.

Becky - you roll it "against" the grain? I´ve never tried it but it seems too tough.

Yup, Sunny... you roll it AGAINST the grain. It isn´t too hard. You can use a couple of short strips of packing tape to hold it shut.

. . . or a bungey cord will hold it too. It forms a large cylinder, about 30 - 36" in diameter and 48" long.

Someone needs to get a pic. I have a few 4´ by 4´ pieces left, wonder if it is enough to experiment with...

Leebee and I rolled a full 4X8 sheet, secured it with packing tape, then rolled a smaller sheet and put it inside the big sheet. We then put it in the backseat of a Maxima. Worked great.
