    I went out back Cut some Logs and Set them in the ground. This was supposed to be the kids playhouse.
    My second youngest daughter helping setting side walls.
    Roof Rafters and side walls Up. Whew what a job for someone doing it
    all by hisself and never building anything before.
    Snow came and My Coop Project Ended Abruptly.
    Roof on and Ends framed in and started on the Nest Boxes.
    Front view all Boxed in and doors and windows made.
    My Side entry View. Still need to finish the inside and Fence in the run.
    First Coat Of Stain
    Outside Almost done
    Front Large Overhang Run side
    Inside Not Quite Finished
    Chicken Run Started.
    Run Finished Except the door
    Side View Of finished Coop and Run.
    Outside Finally Complete.
    Inside Nest Boxes.
    Perches Done..
    I think We'll Call It CAMP YARD BIRD.
    All Finished..Whew!
    Outside and Run
    North side...Yes " Camp Yard Bird"
    South Side Coop door and Supply Box
    Athina Marie
    Inside All Nest Boxes Done

    I love how you start out with "it was going to be the kids playhouse" and don't go any further than that LOL. So I was captured with that pic, and the gorgeous posts. Then the framing, and you saying you've never built anything.
    You could raise buffalo in that thing! It turned out beautifully and you need to pat yourself on the back for the rest of your life. First class, it really is.

    What a beautiful coop! My one concern is the chicken wire fencing. It will keep your chickens in, but it won't keep predators out. Otherwise, wow!
