    My pretty/cheap coop has a floor, wall supports and half a wall at this point. I got tile squares for the floor, tons of hinges from the restore, a roll of hardware cloth, lots of scrap wood....and I've had to halt construction. DH (the D doesn't stand for dear at this moment) kindly pointed out to me if I do much more I won't be able to move it. He's right. So I'm having to rethink location, design, etc. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    School starts next week. [​IMG] I promised the kids they could ride bikes this year if I rode with them. Problem is I have to transport the toddler as well. I've got an adult trike, instep bike trailer and bike kid seat that were given to me. The bike trailer and bike seat won't attach to the trike. I can't afford a different bike right now. I took the basket off the back of the trike and I thought wood, like a pedicab box. DH says it'll be too heavy.

    Has anybody done anything like this? Recommendations?
