So we decided to make a 'pen' for Zane because he is crawling into everything. We decided to make it 6'x6'. It ended up a little larger because of the PVC joints.We used about 82' of 3/4" PVC pipe. 32 3/4" pvc T joints and 8 3/4" 90 degree pvc couplers. Also a plastic garden fance and zip ties. It toataled about $45 and took maybe a half hour.
Step 1: Cut PVC into 40-2 foot pipes and 16-2 inch pieces.
one angle coupler, one 2 inch piece, one t coupler, a 2' pipe, t coupler, 2 ft pipe, t coupler, 2 ft pipe,t coupler, 2 inch piece, angle coupler. That is one of the 4 sides of the top or bottom. Once you have each side assembled, put the together to make a square.
Step 3: Put in Slats
Put the other 2 ft pipes into the open t coupler hole. Push everything hard to make sure it is all the way in.
You can do this a couple ways, make the top like you did the bottom, once it is a square, lift it up an put it on top of the slats.
Or put one side of on at a time.
