    I knocked 15ft off of the shed,put on the new roof and dug the trench for power and water.
    I have sense back filled the trench and started installing windows and doors.
    The hard part is done. the rest should go fast.
    I also picked up my new nesting box from Sweet Savage Farm.
    They gave me an egg basket,3 golf balls and a letter from there chickens.

    I can only work on it a couple hours after work each day and on the weekends when the weather cooperates, but now that the demo is done I can see that things will move a lot faster.
    Hopefully I will have the windows and doors on this week and then the fresh cut 1x8's.

    Coming along great! (Great shot of the property in progress, by the way...)

    Hold onto those golf balls...it's amazing how much help they are! Real curious what the note from their chickens had to say, tho [​IMG]

    I will try to scan the note.
    I did this shed last year and liked the way it came out, so I am going to model the coop after it.
    Only difference is,I Will be using bigger windows.I scored some nice wooden windows from a horse barn.

    Once I finish installing the windows and doors, things will happen fast.
