    It's officially done. And the leaves (and temperatures) are falling, so we are just in time. Who knew that one silly chicken coop could cost so much money and take an entire summer to build? I suppose when you're silly city-folk, a bit OCD like me, and a patient-but-non-construction-loving-would-rather-ride-his-motorcycle-kinda-guy like my DH, I guess I should be glad that got finished at all....

    A million thanks to Buff Hooligans who talked me down from homicide more than once - you're such a gem to me!

    And thanks too to Patandchickens who cheerfully answered every one of my ventilation questions - and trust me when I say that it was waaaaayyyy more than one. Thanks!

    Here it is:
