HERES THE START TO OUR NEW COOP!
I'm jealous - in my world the ground will be frozen for quite a while...oh well, building indoors!
2 walls went up today 2 to go!!!!!!!
Looking good! I started out trying to repurpose pallets, gave up immediately when some treated plywood and about 40 2x4's came my way. How did you take the pallets apart? I spent a lot of time with a hammer, prybar and vise grips......wondering if you had a different approach. I'm looking to build again, still have a go-to for pallets.
looks good but i'd at least double up the supports it stands on just my 2 cents.
You should put some braces on the upper corners of those stands. The whole structure will wobble if you don't use some braces. All you need is short pieces of wood in the corners. This will be especially important when you have to step into the coop to collect eggs or clean the coop.
Thanks for the advice everyone I dont build much still learning. About braking down palletts I used a sawsall to cut nails! Ill post more.
I'm so excited you are reusing materials. I would recommend making the bottom bracers all 4"x4" posts and put them in cement. That will prevent any wind from knocking your structure over.
OK got more done today!
