    So my amazing neighbors gave us this great dog house originally for our goat. But alas Steve does not love the dog house, so we moved him to a shed. So I decided to convert this little house into and extra coop, for young birds just coming out of the brooder, new birds to our flock, or possibly breeding.

    DH had to work this weekend, and the boys were off doing thier thing, so my ladies and I broke out the power tools and the paint brushes and set out to the back yard!

    It's not done yet. I need to add a door to the side of the house, and a nesting box off the side and finish painting.

    Here is the dog house I started with (Thank you amazing neighbors!)

    Ever since we started remodling our house I have come to LOVE tools. That and kitchen gadgets! Gotta love it!

    I actually dashed over to my Mom's house and borrowed a bunch of tools from her. Couldn't believe the selection! Grammy's got a lot of tools!
