    Step 1: The framing
    We started with an old hay wagon that we couldn't use because the axel wasn't street legal. We cut holes in the bed of it for the 4 corner posts, 4x4s that we salvaged from an old dog yard on the property. After adding a few 2x4s (left over from building the riding arena) for more support, my trusty handyman, Danny, put the roof up, in the Amish style, with 6x2s (also left over from the arena). He then framed in the front door, which had been stored in the shed for who knows how long. The window came from a mobilehome that Danny used to live in. When they replaced the windows, he held onto the old ones since he knew he'd find a use for them oneday.
