I tip my hat to mclapp, perhaps the most knowledgeable and experienced 4-bay bowtie reflector builder on the web, who says that building a GH is easier.

When you think about it, if you are building a GH for attic mounting you only have to bend 2 long pieces of stripped solid wire in a specific fashion, attach them to a piece of wood, and then put aluminum foil on a piece of either plywood, strong cardboard, or styrofoam to attach as the reflector.

For outdoor use the need for solid, weather-proof materials makes for a much more involved build.
