    Make him a deal,LOL. It is almost done, and looking good. Perhaps his favorite meal and breakfast in bed if he gets it done for ya. Tell him it is really nice, and will be such a proud day for him when he completes it. Best of luck

    Wow! He's doing a real nice job! Make sure you pass on our compliments and tell him we can't wait to see the finished product (while you light a fire under his butt!)

    Al...I wish it were that easy. I just have to put on my patient hat and keep it tightly in place. I have 10 broilers coming next week, and he promised to make a portable tractor for them (It's not started yet). I'm thinking I may need to pass on the meat birds this spring. Maybe mid summer.​

    Well, no bribing needed here. Just a few gentle reminders of how important it is to you and then ask..."Is it done yet?", Is it done yet?"....LOL! I tell my DH what a big, strong handyman he is and then he smiles and wants me to be happy so he does it......always works for me [​IMG]

    Here is our coop:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Until he crosses his legs and grovel!

    You can "threaten" to undo his handywork by picking up a tool and say I will finish this myself since you are very busy right now. And put up the hardware wire temporarily from top to bottom, and use U nails.

    That would get the fire under his feet.

    Or hire a handyman.
