    Also got the top of the run secured. Eventually plan on putting the clear corrugated roofing on top.

    Looks like a great start. How many birds will be living there?

    When you go to put the clear corrugated roofing on top, are you putting more support? Is it sloped?

    Yeah I am going to be putting roof trusses that are going to rest on those cross beams. Not sure when I will have the money to buy the lumber for that. First priority is getting the coop finished.

    These short days are terrible. By the time I get home it's getting dark doesn't leave much time to get things done.
