    Hi everyone, Well we finally started renovating. The roof and some electric work is about all that is left to do. We started it but ran out of time. Most of the insulation has been done. Have to foam up some small cracks in the wood. This used to be an old 3 seater outhouse from the early 1900's lol. It was cut down by someone about 10 years ago for a tool shed.

    Hope pic came out ok. The before pictures were taken in April 2007. My camera died so The new pic are from a cell phone.
    I will post more when The roof is done next weekend. In the back you can't see in pic is a little 16 sq ft coop for the babies and a little run so they can be outside too.

    Looks nice, but I would use hardware cloth not chicken wire. The latter will keep the chicks in but it won't keep predators out.

    Quote:Thanks I will consider that,

    We had a blast doing it. We tricked our 6 teenagers into helping. We told them a few days ahead that we were all going to do something "together" Wow they were shocked when I handed them paint brushes and hammers lol
    A little complaining but we spent a day together.
    Anyone know how to get paint off chickens lol??????????
