    That's always very exciting, I swear for me building chicken coops is more exciting than having chickens some times, I don't know why, but when I build my first coop I spend days in it drinking coffee and chilling, before I got the chickens, and when I added another 8'x10' new coop I did also the same.

    For me it is an addiction of building and making something from salvaged lumber, it is real rewarding and relaxing thing. [​IMG]

    so good luck and have fun.

    Omran.
