As for size, I know that at work we have a roll of it, about 2.5'-3' wide, probably about 30'-40' long. I don't know why we have so much... the owner was only planning on having a 20' long wall built, but if he finds a bargain he buys it all.
Well, Mr. Trotter, perhaps you could work something out with the owner? I.E. selling me some of it for a good price?
LoL Nubs, chicken wire, thats an uber last resort! My case would resemble a japanese POW camp.
There is this stuff called Metal Lath, and it is used behind plaster when plastering walls.
