    Well My dad works at a copier ware house, and since he is the manager he gets first dibs.

    Well the company spent about $2100 to build this box to transport one of their large copiers.

    They had no use for it after ward and...

    I GOT IT!!!

    My dad ended up getting it for free and it will now sere as a duck condo!!!

    lol

    Well we have to go pick up some weatherer spray so that the wood wont warp or tarnish , and then we can put it together and paint it. Not sure what color though, any suggestions??


    We should finish it by tomorrow, and Ill be posting plenty of pics!

    Well I dont usually Get lucky like this, and I been trying to home make a place for my males since my mama duck kicked them out, Once the ducklings hatch it will be different, but at least now I have a larger place to house them all.

    Quote:Usually I just pick up spare wood off the side of the road, then today My dad said he had something for me, and my mom said that I should give it a try even if I dont like it. She was SO faking me out. I was, and still am literally jumping up and down with excitement!!!
