When I had a run I did 10x30 and did the tarp with an A-frame that would shed snow/ice/rain fairly well.
I'm located in NC so snow isn't much of an issue. I would love to go to 20x20 eventually, but can't afford it right now. I only plan on using it in the short term (2 hours max). The goal is when I go out of town, I could have a friend or family member come by and let them out of the house (they're loose in the house) for a couple of hours and then come back later to let them back in. I'm open for any suggestions though!
