    I actually started a few weeks ago and framed the floor and walls. It was put on hold for a week until my husband could help. I had high ambitions of doing the entire thing by myself. I am 19 weeks pregnant and we have a newly turned 4 year old and an 18 month old. I could not lift some of the pieces and promised my husband I would just wait until he could help so I did. We made a lot of progress today and I'm loving the way it is turning out. I planned our coop for several weeks but when I actually started I think I ended up changing everything [​IMG] I'll keep adding pictures as we progress. Our chicks will be here July 12th so we still have several weeks.
