Just because it's easy doesn't always mean it's best. That's what's so great about your swing set coop. Might be a little harder to put together, but I think it's great.
Well, I was driving at the time, so maybe I heard wrong. 6" According to this thread, they could have been talking about something else entirely!
Thank you so much wishing. It's not all scraps but a lot of it is. And my grandmother told me that when I went to her about a problem I was having, she'd say, son you're living the best days of your life right now and you don't even realize it. At that time I couldn't understand what she meant. Now years later, she's in heaven and I finally got old enough to understand what she meant. I miss that woman so much. We all know one special person like her. She was the type that no matter how bad you felt , just having her enter the room would instantly make you feel better. She was a comedian. She also knew the bible forward and backwards. Upside down and right side up. I miss nanny do much.
