    I bought a derkensen pre built 8x10 playhouse. Had them paint it eggpkant purple. Added my chicken dream specks and built a run! Not bad for a single lady!
    Here is where it all started.[​IMG]

    I dug 2 ft holes and planted 4x4post in concrete. My grandson helped dig a couple of the holes. Then i gug a 8-10 in trench between the pist and buried the bottom of the hardware 1/2in cloth and filled it in with concrete![​IMG][​IMG]

    I made feeders i can accesses from out side the coop from pvc pipes. I put in 2 waterers one heated one regular.i added a dirt bath i can dig up daily. And two stumps with a brach for climbing and a lettuce hanger and suet hanger as boredom busters.

    The water sits up on a concrete slab to help keep out dirt.

    I forgot to mention that i had no plans. I put the run together like giant screen with the cloth sanwiched between boards that i then attached to the post. The run is 16x30. And is 6 ft tall.
    Took s picture of the run tonight
