    Quote:actually I just copied one coop from a byc member page in the med coop design section. so I can't take all the credit. it didn't have any plans, so i knew what size i wanted it and just started building. using that members page for reference.
    its not square level or nothing, but i am proud of myself for actually completing it. i think i started in november.

    thanks for all the compliments everyone!!

    Quote:no, i just don't have my protective skirt around the bottom yet. there is a lip in the ramp and pop door, so i just put it there to keep a racoon from lifting it in case one manages to get in the run. its really heavy oak. i plan on putting a wire on the pop door to lift it and a piece of wood to that will fall when closing the door and locking it and unlocking when you pull up.
