    Well after 2 FULL days of working on our coop renovation we are finally just an hour or so away from being finished!!! All my DH & I have to do tomorrow is finish putting the hardware wire over the windows, put the window framing boards up, Figure out where we want to hang my babies name plates (there are 10 of them, since we are rehoming 4 of them on the 1st!), & then get them put up!!! I can't wait to finish tomorrow & then get to work on our 15x15 run and redoing our 4x15 run for our 2 roo's!! <3 Here are some pics from what we started at to where we stopped tonight!

    The beginning (we are using our old dog breeder)

    Oh & forgot to mention that we have not bought ANYTHING! (Expect a paint roller...) We have renovated the entire coop w/ materials & wood that we already had in either our barn or my father-in-law's barn!!! WASTE NOT WANT NOT!! Can't wait to post the finished product later! My DH is out there now cutting the boards to frame the windows for me to paint real quick & dry while we start making the plans for fixing our 15x15 run!!! [​IMG]

    Nice job with the renovation and with keeping it totally frugal. Now you can sit back and enjoy.
