    I don't even want to say how long this project has been under construction. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Finished the trim today. Still needs final coat of paint, vents, the interior roosts & floor, & final roofing material. Not sure if I'm going to go with cedar shakes or tin roof. Also will be adding electric wire to the support pillars.

    I'm building a red barn design right now too. This will be the 10th coop in this style but the barn trim has taken me FOREVER!! I've spray painted the hindges black and painted all the white trim before putting it on the coop. I'll be SO happy when it's done. I'm going to charge more.

    Yours is Really cute. I love the chicken cut out. [​IMG]

    I'm starting to think mine is going to be the slowest in the world--if only dh and I could find more than three hours a week where our schedules worked with each other. lol Lovely coop and I love the Chicken cutout on the door. I'm sure your girls will love it.

    I love it! Especially up on stilts. Easy to reach into w/o bending over.
