    Hmmm…need more details! This would be perfect for my little place — needs more of a seperation of space. Where did the 2×2 pieces go exactly? I’m assuming the a 2×2 side was used at the top and bottom of each of the 2×5 areas, but how’d you get the additional piece for the top of the passageway? Or is it just painted to match? Confused.

  2. i like it very much! you could put some more picture!! :)

    Great idea if you and everyone else who uses it is very short. I’m six feet tall… those 5x5s are several inches short of six feet. I can already tell I’d hit my head every time I walked through. Also, make sure the arch is structurally secure before you install these – the hollow Expedit sections will not support any weight the way a true post will.
