    Day 1 of project build a coop from pallets is over. Sort of went as planned... But it's twice as big as I originally wanted... But I found really cool gigantic pallets and crates at tsc! Free, and perfect for building stuff with. I finished the floor today, it's huge, and have to rethink it... A bit big and heavy for the legs I had planned... Think I will have to frame it on some larger pieces for the bottom, then either on the ground, or small legs.
    Any thoughts? Legs on coops or on the ground? (Well, on cement blocks at least, too wet otherwise)
    Pics are coming :)

    If you can find used railroad ties they would make great foundations/ runners for under a larger structure. Call around to any railroads that service your area, frequently they replace old ties on their lines and stack them up around their yards, free or cheap if you ask nicely.
    Place them every 2 ft or so under the building. Average dimensions on RR ties is about 7x7x8ft +/- and inch or so, unless you find switch ties which are 10 ft +. It would elevate you about 6" or so off of the ground, or higher if you stack them. They are pressure treated and last for ages.
    Old telephone/utility poles also are great if you know anyone who works at a utility company you can contact.

    Alright, well tonight's been a long one. Spent the entire day out and about taking care of little errands, came home to find on of my RSL sweeties had cut her toe pretty badly. So I spend the last 40 minutes tending to her. Sorry I haven't shot new pics yet, Today was just SOOO busy! Hopefully tomorrow will be a tad bit calmer! (Everyone's sleeping peacefully at the moment and I'm not waking up 30-40 birds to shoot new pics + fighting my computer to upload them at midnight)

    Oh my gosh Sally! Congratz on the Spitz!! Soo cute!
