    Who says women can’t work with wood? I’m not a pro, but my chicken coop didn’t come out too shabby To be quite honest, I got upset at my husband right after he built the frame over god knows what... well I said “to heck with it, I don’t need you, I can do it myself!” Didn’t come out too bad. Now I just need a Chik fil A sign

    Thanks I’m 4”11. I used the stool a lot... especially when putting the shingles on the roof. The bad part about not talking to my husband... no one told me about fiberglass I learned the hard way. Built it in April. Still looks new.

    Did you design it yourself? That's really unique! Love it!

    I saw a similar one online, but I re-designed it and made it quite different. The original one I saw was more narrower and taller. I made mine a lot wider, added shingles, windows with plexi glass that could pop open, I added insulation... my only regret is not making the run taller.

    Thankfully my Dad wasn't one of them.

    I would love to see the frame, if you took pics, and inside too.
