    I'm jealous, I just finished my 6X8 tractor today, and I already want a bigger one.

    Quote:Yep, a pressure treated frame and lots of screws.
    I'm turning the old riding mower in to a "mini yard tractor" to pull it with.

    I put the wire on the vents, top of the run, and roof today.

    Only thing left to do is install popdoor, paint, finish putting nthe wire on the run.
    Then install chickens.

    Totally awesome! I do love a handy tractor. So nice to have something you can move around. Then again, think of all the thick grass we will be mowing! [​IMG]
