    Primer is on...nest boxes not done yet as they will get a layer of insulation then another layer of plywood.

    Had helpers (nephews and grandson) with painting. Paint was extra we had...not real pretty, but the trim will "spice" it up.

    Some of the girls wanted to keep tabs on the progress, so I made them a temp "screen door" so they could watch.

    They are really keeping an eye on "Dads" construction progress.

    Insulation on the nest boxes.....hm, I'll have to pass that idea along to our "architect." [​IMG]

    Your coop looks good and the ladies look like they approve. Love the temp area you made them so they could watch!

    Thanks everyone...we got alot of good information from all you here. The girls have to keep an eye on things and I think they approve.
