    OK, not really, but you can imagine what it would look like when I'm done. [​IMG]

    I went and bought the lumber today and unloaded it into the garage. [​IMG]

    How come your delivery guy didn't dump it in the snow like mine did?


    Good luck, post continuing pics!

    Mine's in the garage because after having my buddy who is a department head at Home Depot load all that stuff onto my 1/2 ton Chevy with overload springs, I drove it home and unloaded it into my garage BY MYSELF in my truck's usual parking spot so it wouldn't get snowed on!

    Where were you when I needed you Steve??? [​IMG]

    I didn't post that to mock you in any way Steve. I'm actually green with envy. If I had had it delivered it would have saved me 3 hours of being in Home Depot with two small boys who were bored of being there after 30 minutes. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That is great! My husband worked like a banshee to goet ours ready while our chix lived in the chicken tractor.
    We had torn down an outbuilding, so we had the materials, but then to figure out what we had enough for...[​IMG].....you can imagine....[​IMG]
    Make sure you show us the "finished product" [​IMG]

    Well for right now I have enough space for all of the chickens I own. This coop is in preparation for some major expansion this year. I have about 8 dozen eggs from various BYC breeders coming the first week of March. This coop will make room for all of them.
