Welcome to my scrap coop building project!
This is the second coop I'm building. The first is an ark-tractor type, good for 2 chickens. Since I now have 5 chickens, I have to build, build, build!!!
I am somewhat disabled, so I can only do a small amount each day on my own.
I dug the holes for the footings, poured in the base rock and leveled the string around the footings so I can level the footing blocks tomorrow when I put them down (assuming I can still move).
Today my sister came down and helped out for a bit. I decided to go with store bought wood for the foundation so I know it is mostly level, fresh, and sturdy. It took quite a while to get the foundation leveled. 5 bags of paver substrate, 6 cinder blocks, 4 2x6's, A little blood and sweat, but no tears!
I'm sure I overdid it today, on the ground muscling those blocks around. I have to work on Monday, so I believe tomorrow will be a day of rest and recovery. I MIGHT install the joists, but really, that's it, I promise!
