Got a lot done today on the coop. I basically completed the rest of the principal framing.
First i did the wall that will have the nesting boxes off of it. The long rectangular opening at the bottom will be where the nesting boxes connect to the coop. There will eventually be three boxes. At this point i'm just binding the walls together at the corner, not really connecting them. They'll all be sitting on the base of course and not on the ground.
Next i started working on the wall that will face the run and have the pop-door. Man, having the base to use as a worksurface for laying out the framing has been awesome.
Here's basically how the pop door will fit on the inside of the coop. The steel door will slide up and down on these rails.
Here's the wall in place. Again, all of these walls will be sitting on the base eventually of course.
And what the pop door will look like from the outside.
And then i did the window wall This will house the big ol'e barn window. The window jamb/frame isn't connected. Like the door, it will be floated and shimmed when I assemble things to make sure it's level.
So, next up are the top plates, Roof joists, building the nesting boxes, and building the door.
