    Public Service Announcement from Birdy num nums:

    Coop building will take 5 times longer and cost 5 times more than you ever imagined.

    At least at my place it does *sigh*.

    That is all.

    I am so exhausted. And broke. [​IMG]

    I added up costs for the new (additional) coop we're going to build and figured somewhere around $500, so I'm budgeting $800 and hope it doesn't get much worse. It'll attach to the existing run, so at least that's one expense I can put off (until I decide to separate the breeds to sell hatching eggs and purebred chicks next spring.)

    On the plus side, I found a solid metal exterior door with jams at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $20 bucks! I also found a couple of big sliding windows for $10 each at another place. Now if I could figure out how to find vinyl siding or appropriate exterior paneling at a huge discount we'd be set. lol
