Thanks, Kitty and welcome this is a great board. If you ever take on such a project, my advice would be to piece things together horizontally. Then attach to mesh or face-paper to put up vertically....

I COULD do it. But I really don't want to. Lol. There are stairs involved. It might be worth my while to hire this out to someone younger and stronger than I. :)
