    Hello. This morning I went out and looked through all the stuff around here. I live next door to my grandparent's old plumbing shop and am in the process of making it a mini farm.

    My grandpa has build many things, and my grandma kind of gathers a bunch of stuff so it's been pretty interesting. I think I have just about everything I need to make a coop but I was having a few ideas I'd like to run past you guys.

    This is a lamp base, I'm pretty sure. It's pretty cool looking and it has about a 3/4ths inch hole at the top. I was thinking of making it into a feeder or watering place somehow. Any ideas?

    A couple ideas for nestboxes. Drawers are probably the most likely but I was wondering the efficiency/coolness of trying to use a sink as well.

    I also had the funny idea of making one out of a refridgerator and oven, but that's a bit morbid methinks.

    Drawers have been used by many on BYC. The sink idea is cool. Take the faucet off first if you can.

    If it was a hardware, hopefully you found some hinges and latches you can use on doors and windows.
