    I got the supplies on St. Patties day.

    we were driving back from taking some cattle to the auction and decided to head on over to get a new trashcan since ours broke. When we walked in the door, it was all over. there was a sign that said '17% off everything'
    we bought 18 bags of feed, a lawnmower battery, and lightbulbs when i decided we should go ahead and buy the supplies for the duckhouse.
    3 sides of siding, 14 hinges, 16 2 by 4s, and other miscellaneous stuff.
    all in all on just the duck house supplies we saved $100 on it! [​IMG]

    but we forgot the trashcan [​IMG]

    we are going to get started on it next weekend or this week, since it goes dark at 7 now.

    The ground level is going to be 4' by 8' so 32 sq feet in all
    and 4 foot high!
    I can fit 8 ducks in there, maybe 7, i dont want to crown them.

    updates will come as soon as we start
