Steps in Building a DIY Pig Pen

While DIY pig pens come in a few different shapes and sizes, there are a few critical steps involved in building a basic, sturdy pig pen. 

  1. The first step is to select or create your design. Take note of the measurements, all necessary tools and materials, and the quantity of materials needed. 
  2. The second step is to acquire all the tools and materials needed for the project. 
  3. Dig the holes to sink your metal posts into the ground. Position the posts inside the holes and fill the space with dirt, gravel, or cement. 
  4. Connect the hog panels to the posts to create an enclosed space. 
  5. Once you are ready to begin the construction of the shelter, measure (twice!) and cut the plywood, insulation, and wire mesh pieces needed for the building.  
  6. Assemble the wall panels and attach them to the metal posts. 
  7. Once the sides are erected, it is time to add the roof. For a quick and easy installation, follow the Ondura Premium Installation Guide
  8. Finally, celebrate the completion of your DIY pig pen with a grand-opening ceremony. Invite your pigs to your shelter and allow them to enjoy their new home for wallowing, play, feeding, watering, and protection from the elements!
