    Void where prohibited.
    Just added three new apartments for the new tenants.
    Also added new balance beams.

    Satellite TV, and the mini bar will go in sometime this weekend, or next week.
    The paint crew is due at any time.
    The place was newly carpeted with Bermuda grass shortly after the pics.

    I should probably make some beehives next.

    The box on the right was the first nesting box. It's actually a shelving module out of a big truck sleeper.

    The upper roosts are the new ones.
    Notice the new carpet.

    I keep a spotlight in the coop for Karaoke night. These birds know how to party!

    Two shipping containers make up the sides of the play yard.

    Pretty soon the beeper crowd is gonna find out they don't all fit in the little doghouse anymore, and will have to move into the newly renovated motel.

    Looks good!

    From what I have read the roosting bars may not be so popular. They are to slippery. Something a little rougher or a 2x4 flat side up would be preferred.

    They're only slippery when I grease them up with lard, just for entertainment.

    Don't forget curtains for the nest boxes! Color coordinated...

    My chickens have informed me they want an interior designer ~snif, to please do coop over in a shabby chic farmhouse look...with ruffles.

    Yes you may.
    I'm thinking about putting in a blacklight and a few really cool Jimi Hendrix posters.
    Curtains are such a pain, so I'm thinking about going with beaded doorways.
    The birds are already quite fascinated with their lava lamp.

    Once you put in sat TV it's nothing but trouble, fights over the remote, Roos never want to watch Chick Flicks. Good luck!
