    My Coop
    I'm calling this coop done, and spending this 100 degree day inside uploading photos instead of painting trim.

    I am so thankful for all the friendly BYC advice I've gotten while building. I have never tried anything like this before, and have learned so much on the journey. The next time dh suggests I buy a coop rather than build one, I might just listen, lol.

    My Coop
    Thanks for your encouragement.

    It is nice to be able to wheel this coop into the shade. I never planned for the hens to live here under the maple tree, but it's the obvious choice now that it's so hot here this week.

    Great job ! I am building a coop on my off days (one a week) . Between the lack of time & funding and this killer heat, I am thinking buying would have been the better option. I have come too far to turn back now. Thanks for sharing yours to encourage us other nonbuilders to stick with it : )
