    The coop is not complete yet, and I will post more pics as soon as we get more time to complete.
    So far we only spent about $90 for the roofing and siding, everything else we found or had available in the shed....lol!
    If you think its rough satisfying your wife, you should try working for a 10 year old daughter!!!

    Will post more soon!
