I got ambitious one winter and spent most of it designing and building this one. I'd consider this one a semi-permanent since what I would do is set it up on a Friday evening and take it down on the following Sunday afternoon. I haven't done any detailed drawings or plans but if you have any questions, drop be a email message. It might at least give you some ideas.
