Ok, so I sketched out (on graph paper) the chicken coop plans and went over them with dh. I purposely designed the henhouse and run to be easily divided by standard sizes of plywood. By my calculations, we need 4 8X4 sheets of plywood. He bought 7! For some reason, he thinks we need 5 sheets of plywood for the henhouse and 2 whole sheets of plywood FOR THE NEST BOXES!!! Oh my word! I am NOT getting giant mutant alien chickens! I even drew out the nest box which is a fairly simple 2-story thing - overall12"W x 14"D x 28"H. 2 sheets of plywood? And he got a bit snippy when I questioned (very nicely, I might add) his quantities. "I figured this all out last night. We need that much!" I am truly blessed to have a dh who will agree wholeheartedly to having chickens and building their coop. He is a good husband and father. Perhaps I should wait until tomorrow to go over the plans again?
