    Very nice. I bet your kids want to hang out in there.

    Perfect size for your chicks. Look forward to seeing more pics.

    It's funny you should mention that. I have 4 kids and they spend more time in there than the play house I built for them!!! I found my two youngest perched on the roosts yesterday clucking away - hysterical. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Work update - I managed to get most of the trim painted today before the rain came. I also put a 2 x 10 up to the chicken door to see what it would look like. My 4 kids and the neighbors 2 kids proceeded to act like chickens, crawling up the ramp and right through the 1' x 1' chicken door - it was too funny.. I also managed to get the remaining plywood up so the walls are done. After the kids were done crawling around the coop, I framed out the chicken door to accept a sliding door panel. PICS are coming, promise!
