Yep, I'm looking forward to your posting your photos when your coop is done (well, it might be hard to say it is ever DONE. Mine's not.)
The birdhouse is adorable. People are very creative, and when you price cupolas and/or weathervanes it is shocking how much they sell for. So, making something is the way to go...whether functioning or not.
Well done, Bammy, for such out-of-the-box creative thinking! It certainly looks very elegant with all the curved lines and details. Very cool.
I need to update my website on BYC!! My coop is pretty much done... well.. I have more projects for it in the Spring. I have shutters that are going up, among a few other things. I also need to build a run! It got cold here FAST and it's rainy and miserable now. So I wimped out and bought dog panels (chain link) and set them up for a temporary run this winter on the back of the coop. I'll build them a nice big run in the Spring with a ROOF. After this winter and a tarp over the panels... UGH, I can see how necessary the roof is now. And yes, a cupola is on my list. Like you said... are we ever really done??
