    Very nice! I made a tractor out of pallets and really enjoyed the process. There is something special about recycling pallets into something else!

    With the exception of the 4x4's everything is recycled the windows came from a friend doing window replacement in his home had to buy shingles of course & some hinges we had paint leftover from big coop project.the dog kennel & chain link also recycled that will make up the run so we don't really have a whole lot in it. [​IMG] never would have thought about it but folks o[​IMG] here have been so helpful & creative. [​IMG]

    Nicely done. Love all the windows and it's quite bright and cheery inside.

    Very good job, would suggest a much larger roof to prevent water from dribbling down into the coop thru a wall gap.
