    Oh I wish I had a bobcat--my little 3x4 is ready to go to it's spot, but I'll have to wait until I can get 4 able bodied men over to move it out of the garage. Love the color--yellow is such a happy color.

    how are you going to do that?!

    OK Here we go . .
    First ya gotta get Grandpa's chains around
    [​IMG]

    Then ya gotta go get Grandpa's tractor
    [​IMG]

    And bring it up
    [​IMG]

    Then you gotta hook up the chains to the chicken coop and start pulling slowly while keeping an eye on what you are pulling

    [​IMG]

    Then you pull it across the yard

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then you have to lay pavers for the sleds to slid and sit on

    [​IMG]

    And pack them down nice and tight

    [​IMG]

    Then you have to measure, carefully

    [​IMG]

    Then you have to wait until Grandpa brings the Bobcat around ( My neglected garden is a parking lot right now )

    [​IMG]

    Then slowly push it backwards into the hole !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Even my entry door will be out of the weather !

    [​IMG]

    And this is the view of my chicken house from my kitchen window !! yeah !!

    [​IMG]

    And after all the work, Grandpa had to take his helpers on a cruise around the yard !!

    What great family memories for the kids. You have such good help. I love the happy yellow color of the coop, too. Good job.
