I have started construction on my coop. I have a large fenced in area where we use to keep our big dogs. So, I've deceided on building my coop inside this area. I have been collecting stuff for the build for a few weeks now. Today I have laid out hte floor plan. Now, member...I'm doin all this all by myself. DH has told me he aint helpin..that this is all my "project". Anyway...I'm out there today..the weather was great, about 70ish. So...I'm "tryin to nail 16d galvanized nails in a pressure treated 2x6. I finally got two nails in the first board.....and then on the third nail...it went in crooked...then I couldn't take it back out...I knew I had to get this crooked nail outta there...I couldn't let DH see what a awful job I was doin........... to make a long story short......I was so upset...I sat there and cried. Hubby came home... he musta felt sorry for me...cause now..he's gonna help me build the coop!! I never relized this was gonna be this hard. How in the world did all yall build such sweet lookin coops and runs?? I'm tryin to build a 8x8 coop, I know I'm not no construction worker, but...good grief...this is frustrating!!! hahaha...it's actually kinda comical...thank goodness I live on 2 1/2 acres....so nobody heard me cryin like a baby. hahaaa The tiny bit that I did get done does look good though. I'll try and take some pics. Sorry...I just had to vent to somebody.
