Slow going, but we're getting there. DH and I did floor, and framing, then my brother came for a visit and he's so good at this stuff (DH and I not so much) Anyway, he "fixed" a few things we didn't have quite right, also he cut and installed the rafters, then DH and I put the sheathing on. Who knew that OSB has a right way and a wrong way to go on the roof?? And, we got the wall wrap the wrong way around. Geez, this building stuff is not as easy as being able to swing a hammer, that's for sure. Anyway, this afternoon, DH and DB cobbled together some staging, not pretty but very sturdy to get started with the roof shingles, and then, saviours to the rescue!! My two dear nephews arrived in the knick of time, and did it in less than four hours! As we get older we get slower, creakier and more nervous being up high, but these two were like cats up there, it was fabulous. I had been trying for a week to find someone I could hire to come do it but all the places I called were saying, "well, we might be able to get there early in September" or just not interested at all so we had finally psyched ourselves up to get up there and get er done when the boys arrived. What a fun afternoon, and now, the windows and door can go in and the poor little birds in the basement will soon have a new home. I'm also going to have storage for feed and all the other stuff that seems to accumulate, like extra waterers and shipped egg containers in case, I might in the future have some eggs to ship. The birds in the pics nosing around live in the other coop, but are going to be so jealous of this new high rent district. img]https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/54373_dscn4102.jpg[/img] Can you tell the "old guys" from the "young blood" in the pics? Oh, this growing older is really quite hard to do gracefully!! Anyway, thought you all might be interested, I know I sure love seeing other set ups and I know you'll understand my excitement. Will post later with the finished (as finished as it ever gets, anyway) product.
