    There are more pictures on my BYC page! I will add pictures as we get the inside finished, right now it only has our young flock (7 pullets, one cockerel) in it.

    Thanks!

    We got all the painted PT wood from a free swingset, and a lot of lumber was left on the property and we've only had to buy wire, netting and some hardware & screws so far. I also got free windows, and some other free and cheap supplies from Craigslist, FreeCycle and ReStore. I'm lucky enough to have my carpenter father helping and teaching me on this project as well. I know it looks kind of cooky, but we don't have any neighbors who can see this building and I really enjoyed the salvaging and collecting process.

    I got a lot of great ideas and tips from everyone here on BYC and I'm really happy with what we've done so far. Now we just need to finish the inside and get everyone in there!
