    Its not clear. 6′ x 14′ said to be about 8′ tall, 6′ clear at center. Looks like 6″x 6″ galvanized hog wire panels. Reflective mylar bubble wrap inside facing, maybe 1/2″ styrofoam bent to shape, some kind of white tarp material on top. Wire approx. 12.5′ x 14′ bent. 30″ wide door, cut to height maybe 5 1/2″ tall. 2’x3′ window (needs 5.7 sf emergency egress clear per code.) 2×4 studs, 2×4 misc. framing, siding, 2×6 deck boards for deck, plywood floor assumed.
