We are always UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Hi there :ya
Our coop projects have been great fun and learning experiences for us. Thanks for the wealth of information on BYC forum.

ENJOY
First part of renovations: Our home was built in 1841. On our property there was this old 3 or 5 seater (we are not sure) out house. Over the years this building has been many things. From a storage shed, pool shed, dog house. you name it. What we invisioned was a chicken coop.

We Started by ripping off the roof and a new paint job.

Next is the new roof.

We insulated were we could and the coop held up great during a winter storm. We got 2 feet of snow. My son was helping us dig out. We were very scared for the chickens.

Spring 2008 we decided to start our expansion project. With the cost of living sky rocketing we decided to build with little or no cost. We gathered materials from old construction jobs from us, friends, neighbors etc.
