    I have it in the dry and have it primed outside and the front door on. It started to rain so I had to put the tarp on the roof and call it a day. My next door neighbors son told me to use all the shingles I needed for the roof so I just saved 80 bucks and she also told me that I can have about 100 ft of 2x4 wire fence she has so I can take back the chicken wire and pocket the 65.00. Tomorrow I have 2 pieces of trim to put on and build the roosts and nest boxes and put the vinyl down after I spray a coat of paint on the interior ( I am a painting and home repair cotractor so I have a lot of leftover paint and goodies in my shop) I am using a low odor paint and with the ventilation that I have in the coop I should have the girls in byh the weekend.

    Yeah for great deals and great progress! Remember that chicken wire isn't very predator proof.
