This was supposed to take a couple days. It's been a week and a half, though there were days I couldn't work on it due to rain and most days I only had a couple of hours to dig. So glad to have this part done! Fingers crossed the rest goes more smoothly, now that the foundation is level and sturdy!
Progress from yesterday and today. The first view is the interior floor. It will be sand covered once construction is complete, eventually we may put in pavers for a floor but for now it's dirt, gravel, sand. The second is the back end which will have nest boxes attached. The third photo is of the interior looking through the nest box opening and facing the wall that will have the entrance door for people and the chicken door. We went ahead and just tacked the wall up for tonight for stability.
Hi - I am just getting started on my own coop build and am thinking of a similar foundation to yours. Is your frame just sitting on top of the concrete blocks? It's not attached to the blocks in any way, is it? Sorry if this seems like a silly question; I am a real construction novice! Any tips or advice are welcome!
