    I can't believe we did it but we DID IT!!!

    DH has been building the parts in the garage for what feels like forever and today it was COLD and very very windy. But, today was the day we assembled it and it's done!! I'll post pics as soon as possible!

    He's a genius! Each part fit together like puzzle pieces and the walls fit together snugly. Then we got the roof up and she was up!

    He put in nesting boxes and a bunch of roosts, the heat lamp and the white light on a timer.

    Then was the "move the chickens" game! A great time was had by all - except for the chickens!! But, it is supposed to go down to 19 degrees tonight and they should be snug and warm!

    Congratulations! It's suprisingly challenging isn't it? We started last February for a spring hatch in May. We made it, barely! And ours was a conversion from a horse stall to a coop. I know you'll be pleased and I can't wait until you have a chance to show pids. We have our 10th 'snow event' approaching, as the weather people call it. A blizzard, I say!

    OK let's try this.

    These are the pieces.

    Walls up!

    Roof on! It still needs roofing felt and shingles and trim, but it is UP!
