    I borrowed a friends hubby to help me with this. It was fun to build and there's still some work to be done to finish it off like some sort of roof. And I still need to tack the wire from the inside to the 2X4's. Anyhow, here it is. I hope I did this right!!!

    And last but not least is the most friendly of the 3, Tawonda. (Ever see the movie Fried Green Tomatoes?)

    I want to build a raised flower/herb bed in front of it and add hanging flower baskets to the posts.

    :DThanks! The run is 8X13. It WAS going to be a simple 8X8, but then it was suggested to completely enclose the coop IN the run. So that's why the odd size. The posts to the left were already set, lol. Now it gets hard to roof since the area by the coop is 5'.[​IMG]
