    We started by taking off carpet from 5 2x4 and plywood (slabs) we got for $4.00 each
    [​IMG]We placed them with 6' presure treated wood legs on the 4 corners for about 7.00 each
    my son helping haul back the side with one of the legs ready to go[​IMG]
    [​IMG]Drilling 2 holes on the upper part, on each side, covered by wire for ventillation.
    The door doubles as their walkway up into their home. [​IMG]we attached slats to the doorway short enough to get the door closed The 3 nesting boxes we got from a friend (free) fit great inside and we made an opening to access the boxes.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]we need a roof next.[​IMG] that comes soon (before the rain I hope) [​IMG] We just have a sheet of Particle board on top for now.
    [​IMG] the waterer and feeder are atached with bike hooks below the nesting boxes.
    total cost $48. for the wood $16 for the hinges and locks. Lots and lots of Elbow greese.[​IMG] [​IMG]
    We plan on putting it atached to the outside area of the run about 1 foot lower in the ground.
