    Looks awesome! You should go into the coop building business! Can you come to my place and mill some wood for me - I have 3 dozen 12"-18" diameter pine trees that need to come down, and I could build a barn with all of the wood! What type of sawmill do you have? And what did you use for the automatic doors?

    My Band Mill was built and designed by myself and my Brother it has a 16 hp Briggs motor and can saw up to 28" diameter logs 21 feet long...........LOL I enjoy Making things that make me more Independent rather then buying commercially produced products. the Coop doors operate using a d20 drapery motor and timer
