    We started building the first floor this afternoon, the first floor is 12'x24'.
    The entire building will be two stories and the upstairs will be an office for the hatchery.
    There will be 9 coops inside the first floor (each will be 6'x4').
    the runs will be 6'x12' with two larger runs at the end of the
    building for larger poultry and game birds.

    we used 4"x4"x12' for the floor frame. the whole frame is
    12'x24'.

    We built the walls 8 ft high for more room to move and add
    new editions if necessary.
