    Soooooo! The coop ( Bantam Bungalow) is finally done. What a fun project....can't wait to start another one ( just kidding )! Wife would kill me. Still have a few days of roofing, painting and run to build, but "The Coop is History". The rest will be easy compared to what I've done so far.....oh, and don't even ask how much $. Like the first one, more than we planned... over a GRAND, but worth every penny.
    Here are some updated photos. Hope ya like it!

    [​IMG] Left side facing run area. Storage cabinet doors in, rafters in place for metal roof over covered run area. Painting and metal will go on tomorrow. Area under storage cabinet will be where feed and water will be. Then build gate and set up run.

    Gorgeous coop! And I LOVE your statues and decorative signs!!! And I love green, so I love your color scheme. Ventilation, windows, sliding pop door...I don't see one thing I don't love. [​IMG]

    Very pretty!

    Nice work too. All these super coops are really making me push for the favela to be replaced. A coop should at least have a door.
