    Not
    done yet but getting there. Ive never built anything like this before. I hate using saws, and avoid it as much as possible. I have blisters, my body aches, and Ive had atlease 5 splinters. But man do I love this coop so far.

    Leave it to me to change my idea on what I was going to build right at the last momment. I had a barn idea in mind then when I got to the store I was like. Ya know Im going to build something that looks like a little house instead.

    n.n thanks. I'm going Saterday to get some Buff Orpingtons. 4 hens and hopefully a rooster. I was suppose to go today but had to put it off . For two reasons, one the coop isn't done and 2 the woman I'm getting them from was going to be busy till 7pm and I couldn't come that late cause my hubby has to go to work at 7.

    Your right...You shouldn't allow him NEAR power tools. I see you are using that crazy "Showgirl" thing you drew last night. Looks better with the color on it.
