I start building it in mid November. It's just about what you envision. 2"x12" wood makes a frame that we line with a white boat tarp. The finished rink is about 20' x 45'. Then we fill it with wather when cold weather is expected to continue and in about a week we have ice. I've played hockey all of my life so it's fun to teach the kids how to skate and enjoy the cold weather. I've attached some pics.

Wow! No Way! You've got to be the coolest (pun intended) parents in the neighborhood... maybe the city! Do other folks do this too? Good for you guys!

Actually, you may want to consider making this it's own little thread in 'campfire chat'.... "How to make an Ice Rink in your back yard!!!!" Definitely post pics and how to do it (we can't as we only hit 32 degree's a couple of days in January! Otherwise we are in the 40-50's at night so we can't do it).

Yeah, the neighborhood kids think it pretty cool. We go through quite a bit of hot chocolate. Building home ice rinks is fairly popular in the upper midwest and Canada. Our city has an outdoor rink that is up all winter as well. As we get closer to winter I'll have to do a campfire chat on ice rink building, maybe it will inspire someone.
