    Posts were set 4 days ago (finally after 36 nights in a row with temps below freezing). Yesterday afternoon and this morning I was able to get the floor structure together before the rain soaked me. Coop will be 6X8. I raised up this high to provide shelter for the birds and a protected area to put a sand/DE dust bath bowl. The space below the coop will enclosed with hardware cloth with one side open to the run attached to the coop.

    I'm in hopes of making a sweet home for my birds that also user friendly to me. I'll post pixs as progress moves on and look forward to comments, criticism and input.

    That's a great idea..."nested" functions of indoor shelter and outdoor cover. Post more when you got 'em!
