    WOOT! I got the tin cut and installed! I have liquid nails to waterproof the little nail areas. We didn't have any of the nails with washers. This tin has been reused 3 times and magically, not too many holes in it! I do think this is going to be it's last time though [​IMG] The tin works great. On the lower slope, I had to put it on weird (sideways) so that I had enough, so it does hold a little bit of water. It's not too bad though, because of the slope. I could have bought a 9 dollar sheet of tin, but why not use what I have? I do have a small peice left incase I decide to make an exterior nesting box. I am undecided on that, but probably won't. So in less than a week, I have a coop! I'm sorry I didn't get a lot of pictures. It isn't painted yet, and it needs ONE more board on the front and it'll be DONE!
