Hi Allan,

Thanks for responding.  To answer your questions: 

Maybe, to start, about 3 or 6 tunnels, each a minimum of 14 feet wide by 
about 20-30 feet long or longer.   After we see how that works (and 
whether the unanticipated problems are less than the current ones and 
the benefits greater) we'll increase or expand (or shrink) accordingly. 

We would prefer and are willing (capable is another question) to try to 
make own frames if the materials are available affordably here in 

Best wishes,
