So this weekend I got to raising a structure last weekend. I took some pics this morning before leaving for work. please excuse the mess, to protect everything from the rain/snow I covered it with the thick rubber sheet I'm thinking about using for the floor of the coop. I'm still not sure it is a good idea to use this with the DLM or paint on the roofing rubber. I did manage to cover the complete bottom with wire fencing then bury it before the ground froze so that is a bonus. it helped that we harvested our potato bin, which is right next to the coop, so I had some nice soil to spread out. Major to do's before winter. 1) Add vertical 2x4s to the front, placement depends on where I decide to put the door 2) Lateral bracing for front and back 3) Decide on the layout of the coop interior, and build it. 4) Build the slant roof and install it. Currently the metal roofing is just placed on top to help protect it 5) Paint At this point it isn't too late to change things so any tips would be greatly appreciated!
