    we started framing with plates on both sides to make secure joints, and we had no set plan just thought this would be nice and all fell into place. My wife and I enjoyed our joint project, she had suggestions and we tried to make it happen.[​IMG]

    Nice! We had to build a bear and cougar proof coop too. We usde hog panels for the run and built the coop similar to your's. Great job!
