Blueberry Cage to keep the birds out!

My customer was tired of feeding her blueberries to the birds. If the birds achieve access to the blueberries now, they are either very smart or very large! Everything is bolted & screwed together. We used hurricane straps and metal fastners for the hip roof. We then covered everything with 1" galvinized wire and added a treated 2 x 6 at ground level so that trimming the grass will be much easier.
