Hello. Im interested in making a walk-in fruit cage and saw this range of components. I have two questions: how is a cage constructed from this range anchored in the ground? Secondly, the door kit seems to be a set of connectors; how many / what size of rods is needed to complete the door? Finally, is there any catalogue or construction guide available on the web site to show how a cage would be constructed Thanks
