    Thats great! I have been looking for one, but all the ones I have seen so far are big bucks.

    Wanted to add that it will look great in that old building coop you have!! [​IMG]

    Ha - 15 boxes would be about 14 more than we need at our house.

    Still, I'd love to get my hands on one because I think they are so cool. What a great bargain!
