    The Plans.... we salvaged what wood we could from part of the old fence we replaced the weekend before

    DAY 1 Cementing and Leveling

    Found these windows out for the trash down the road. Might be useful!

    Day 2 Framing

    Day 3 Ventilation and Flooring
    Simple hinged Window will do just fine! Need as much airflow as possible, it gets hot in florida!

    Day 4 Paneling and Wire protection
    old fencing for the panels, check out the nice new fence directly behind!
    you can kind of see how we dug the protective wire in to the ground in this shot

    Day 5 ramps and nesting boxes

    Day 6 Putting the old gate up as a wall (took 6 of us all clucking at each other like hens!)

    Kick the cat out, he had been lounging in it all week.

    All the wire was dug 18" in to the ground to prevent intruders.

    Finished Product! Added some bird netting....
