    Man, that looks great to me. I wish I had a nice BIG building like that to use. I'm kind of cramped on space for the coop. But I think I might have found a way around that. Keep up the good work. Chris

    wanted to update my progress with more pics and get some input from some of you on how to put a door on my openening so i dont have any need to go inside the building.managed to get it cut thismorning.i still have to cover the top of the run with something to.the wife thinks i should do 3 sheets of plywood and roof half of it
    i was thinking for the door cover to go with the rope and eyebolt setup i've seen so many use in there designs[​IMG][​IMG]

    I like your run; really a nice, clean look to it. I think your wife has a good idea about covering half of it with plywood. The chickens will be able to access the run in more inclement weather. What a nice spot under the tree!
    I hope your chickens realize what a terrific set up they have. [​IMG]

    Very nice! I'm going to cover part of my runs that I'm building. It seems like my girls won't go outside in our rainy months much, and they really need the extra space.

  8. Really nice run! I need to expand mine lOL!
