    We needed a bigger coop so I convinced DH to use some of the materials lying around, we had a stack of pallets and an old barn / shed that had been torn down when the horse barn went up... I thought I had pics of the base and floor going in but can't find them.. oh well this is what we have so far

    next step is the screen off the ventilation then put up the plywood sheeting and paint [​IMG] so far the only expense has been the 2x4 rafters, plywood, and screening ($90) I already have left over house paint and a window to put in.. we are getting there [​IMG]
