Well, after a big push this weekend, I hope that by next weekend the coop will be done. At the very least, the girls will be inside the coop itself and awaiting the fencing to be finished. I still need to make the door for the run, the large coop door in the back and the egg flap. In addition, the two winter shutters for the roof eve inside the run, but this will be screened with hardware cloth and can stay open for quite a while. Inside the coop, I just have to make the roosts and a screened panel to close off the nests until they get the hang of roosting and with luck not get into the habit of roosting in the nests. I scored a TON of off white/pale yellow vinyl siding today (like 50+ twelve foot strips) so I need to buy some J strips and stuff and I now plan to use the vinyl for the coop over the cedar siding. I am stoked with how nice it is shaping up, once the run section and the wood trimming has been painted gloss white I can install the hardware cloth to the run and it will be done! Well almost... I now plan to put 24" of either trap rock or mulch with a tiny little 12" high picket fence around the coop. I found the metal roofing is head level and I want to keep people from walking too close and getting hurt on the sharp edges. I did round off the corners, but that stuff can give you a good scratch. Well, after a long-winded post, what do you think so far? After these photos, I finished the tarpaper on the side towards the run and added the wood corner trim. (I have to even with the vinyl siding because of the open door under the coop does not allow for enough room for the corner trim. (Oh, the roof that is sticking out over the end of the run will have a rafter like the back side, I left it "open" so I could size the metal roofing to stop exactly where I wanted it to.
