    We are moving to a new (old) house and I am planning to partition off part of the two car garage for our chickens. How would I go about attaching the wood framing to the cinder block walls and cement floor? Thanks for any tips!

    You can use a hammer drill and then hammer drive-in studs in the masonry, or you can use a gunpowder-activated tool to set nails right thru the studs into the masonry. Ditto for floor. [​IMG]

    If you check the coop contest you will find one like what you are going to do. It turned out really nice. more like a dorm room than a coop.
