    I saw that my neighbor was throwing away these pannel looking things so I went to check it out. I got closer and saw they were some kind of privacy/retaining wall. My mind started clicking. I was thinking "thats an awful lot of useable t1 11 and 2x4's. I told hubby to ask him if I could have it. He waited and waited and the next thing I know I look out my window and he is starting to BURN them! I was like ohhhh no you dont! So I made hubby go and drag them out of the burn pile while it was going! LOL So the black stuff you see on some of the pannels is the smoke from the other part of the fire. Thankfully we got em before they caught on fire. YIPPEE! Here is my new FREE coop so far:

    ****PICS WILL BE BACK ON ON 11-1-11...THEY SAID I EXCEEDED MY PAGE VIEWS...SORRY Y'ALL. [​IMG]
    UNTILL THEY COME BACK THEY CAN BE SEEN ON MY WEBSITE: www.sassysilkie.com

    Now they are telling me they will be on the day of the month that I created my account....who knows when that is! LOL You'll just have to look on my site...there are not as many pics there but you can get the idea untill these get back on. JEN

    I was gonna cry when I saw the fire! I started SCREAMING at my husband! LOL he went out in the rain and pulled them out of the fire. Nothing got burned at all the black is just smoke that will wash right off. We are gonna wash it and re paint to match my other coop. [​IMG]
