    thanks, .. it was actuially a lot more work than i thought it was going to be...lol... but then again, how many coops have a leaed glass front door ?...lol...not completely finished yet, .. need to add the trim cedar pieces, .. what you cant see it that it is mobile....by lifting one end, slipping 2- 16 inch bicycle tires into place, and lifting other end with a dolly i can drive it anywhere, .....lol...when i built it , i intentionally kept weight down as much as possible so i could move it easier, ...I will add more pics when i finish it and show it in "moving" stage......and yes, i checked all the city ordinances before i started , thanks...
