We did some research and they were selling shelters for over $600.00. We don't have 600 bucks at this point to spend on a hog house. We opted to re-purpose some existing materials, and also found a stash of culled lumber that was reduced by 70%. We spent about $40.00 on the shelter, that will one day become a farrowing pen.
Hopefully this will last longer than the "three little pigs" fable/story and a big bad wolf won't blow their house down!

It will definitely serve it's purpose, and the three little pigs actually went inside just before we left yesterday.
