A photo documentary of the coop build

This is the first "ground up" carpentry project I have ever undertaken. I had a plan in my

head that I sketched out on paper, and bought most of the materials at Home depot. I

impressed myself with how well it came out. I had done renovations on my old house I

used to have, but the basic structure was always there to reference. I gutted the bathroom

twice, gutted and renovated the kitchen (cabinets done by pros), and a major overhaul and

update of the master bedroom. This was my finest effort to date. I now have the confidence

to build my 12' X 16' out building in the near future.

The older guy you see in a couple of the photos is my Father-In-Law, Skip Boulette of

Kissimee, Florida. He was my laborer every day while this project was going on. Retired

from Pratt & Whitney, he and my Mother-In-Law are snowbirds that come up from Florida

each summer. I could not have done this without their help. At age 70, he had no problem

with the blazing heat and humidity, or the heavy physical requirements I needed. Thanks
