    Have you looked at big kennels or dog runs? Have you looked at garden windows or box windows.


    If you want to stick build it, then there’s tons of ideas https://catiospaces.com/catios-cat-enclosures/ and these folks will sell you plans, if you can’t deconstruct it.


    i would use treated lumber and screw it together with coated screws.

Also if you try to actually build wood structure may need to check into permits
