This is a really neat Sukkah and easy to put up. They look beautiful, too.

I like his banner, it's quite clever with the little roof.

I love this time of year! I have a new roommate moving in who doesn't know much about Sukkot, so he's in for a little world religion lesson. Because I live in an apartment, I decorate our enclosed back porch - 3 sides are windows. We bring out some TV trays and have all our meals outside under the decorations.

Our sukkah is a teeny, tiny two-seater. Sukkos makes me really wish-I-were-thin.

Lol! You really must wish so to make that your screen name. Have you tried low carb? I know so many people who have had a lot of success with. My sister has always struggled with her weight. Last year she went low carb and she is for the first time in her life, not overweight. It seems to me the people who eventually win the weight battle seem to discover what works particularly for them. For my mom the only thing that works is vegan. Every body is different.

I like the site too, and those Sukkahs look dead easy to hang. My only hesitation for the tubular one is having the steel beams going across - unless I am reading it wrong.

Tischadesh - and happy Sukkot!

Which one? Metal or Wood.


Just in case people don't know the requirements of building one, here is a link:
How to Build a Sukkah - Your sukkah-building manual: the what, where and how of sukkah construction - Sukkot & Simchat Torah

I ordered ours (10x10) years ago from a company in SC. They make kennels so three of the sides are fixed and the forth side is custom for entrance. Takes one person (me) to put it together in under 30 minutes. I hang brown tarps around the sides and wire tie in place. The roof is made of a few 2x2's (around $20/yr) and those are bought new each year (link explains why). Initial cost was around $300 including delivery.

FWIW if you have a Southern States nearby, its cuts the delivery fee significantly as they are one of the chains they sell through.

We got the metal one. We have built them before for scratch using lumber but it always takes so long to put up and we never have it done in time and its just not enjoyable. I think this one should be very simple and quick. I'm really looking forward to it.
