My husband works out alot so he spent the last 3 days working as much as he could. With the temps in the mid 90s and humidity just as high he could only work in the evenings. Hubby doesn't like building anything and isn't very handy with a hammer so I was extremely impressed with what he has done so far. We he gets back in he is gonna add the roosting poles and nesting boxes. Then hopefully he can get to the run after that. The dimensions are 8ft x 8ft. 6ft tall in the front and 4ft tall in the back. This allowed him to use whole sheets of plywood and not have to trim them at all. As I said he doesn't like to build. The front and vents on the side are covered in chicken wire but it's a different kind than the usual. It can't be pulled apart. We tried and it wouldn't budge. Also there is gonna be a 6 ft tall run all the way around the coop and out to the side a bit. My dh was funny. As soon as he finished he asked me if I was gonna paint it while he was gone. Of course. I'm gonna paint it and make it girly for the girls! Here it is now painted. Molly of course thinks it is her dog house. She is gonna have a surprise when she finds out the truth! I'm gonna add some flowers to the side later tonite when it cools off. It was hard to paint in the heat. It dried on contact.
