Well, I've been at it for a few days now. Things are progressing nicely, I think. Here are the pics:


The layout/site preparation:



The Pressure Treated Foundation and some wire mesh that runs along the perimeter (It's hard to see the wire but it's there.)



The end of Day 2, Two walls up:


End of Day Three, All walls completely framed:



So that's the progress so far. Wife Says I can't get my peeps until I've got the coop totally done, even though they live their first few weeks inside where it's warm. So I've got extra motivation to get this done. The pigeon loft will be for racing/homing pigeons that I'm going to raise to feed/train our falconry birds.

My dad used to have homing pidgeons. He would drive out in the middle of the no-where desert and let them go. Most came back alright. I'm excited to see how your coop turns out!

All the Wall sheathing is done. Roof Sheathing is done too.

All that's left is to make some doors, put on a metal roof, perches, nestboxes, and interior partitions. Later on, I'll put on some wooden siding material so I don't have to look at the OSB.

Awesome coop. And now, the big question: is there, or will there be a blueprint of sorts for the rest of us husbands? I'm a big fan of dual-purpose creations. Especially if it uses dimensional cut lumber..saves a lot of time.
