A Photo Documentary of the Run Build
Ok...so here is a photo documentary of the construction of the outdoor run.
It is 8'W X 12'L X 8'H. All framing was done with PT 2 X 4's, the top and sides
covered with chicken wire, and the bottom 4 feet is 1/2" hardware cloth.
I have a tarp over part of the top for shelter. The first winter I discovered
that tarps don't work so well when they get covered with snow. I have changed the
roof to be corrugated roofing that goes the entire length of the pen.
The ground around the coop is uneven and littered with rocks and boulders. I dug
up the rocks I could, and smashed up the ones that were too big. I made the top of
the run level and square, letting the bottom framing follow the contour of the ground.
