Here we go! Construction of the coop at Casa de Los Brookes is underway! We've got more done than the pictures would have you believe, and we're going to extend the run area out a bit to give the ladies more room... But we're neck deep in it, for sure. The "front" of the coop with the frame for the future door. Since this picture was taken, we have decided to extend it another 12' for more room in the run. We sank the posts 12" and embedded in concrete. You can see, once again, the "front" with the door frame, which will be dug up. There's Mr. Brooke working on the run-side wall of the coop and our two Australian Shepherds, uh, "helping." This is the completed frame for the coop wall that will go inside the run. If you squint, you can see the cement blocks where the stilts will sit and keep the wood from touching the ground (ignore the pile of trash in our future goat area... the previous owners of the property apparently had no pride). We've got a ways to go, but we are closer to having chickens than we were before! We welcome any comments or tips that y'all might have. We are brand new to this and have never undertaken a building project this large. More pics to follow... Thanks for taking a look.
