that I am not going overboard with the coop and barn upgrade. I am renting a trencher. I want to upgrade the power to the barn and I figured while I have a trench cut from the house to the barn I might as well add a few extras. I figure I would run a water line, cable, phone line and computer line, and a gas line. Now I'm not hooking this all up at once. I figure while the hole is there now is the time to add this stuff. Water she agrees with, she doesn't like having to drag a hundred feet of hose to water her flowers. Power, well I sort of have her convinced I need 220 out there. Well cable you just never know how long that game is going to run over. Phone line she agrees with too, our cordless doesn't work very well out there. I figured I would run computer line in case I ever install a web cam in the coop. But that one might take some more convincing. Gas line so I can finally heat my barn. Oh and there's the vinyl siding I'm currently putting up on the coop, and the privacy fence I still need to get so you cant see the run from the street or the neighbors. I really don't see her problem.
