    he had just cut off the roof when i pulled up. i needed a come-along and some chains to get it on my trailer. it is insulated on all six sides and has a steal bottom. i figure all i need to do is add a roof, window and some nest boxes out the side. the door comes off to expose a larger hole for cleaning out. it will be much better than what my girls are in now.

    Quote:it is. if he had left the roof it would have been even more. it had a small attic/storage place with screens for ventilation and a roof vent. it had electricity and an interior light. he cut all of that off in an attempt to saw it into pieces so the city would pic it up as trash. not sure why he just did not put a "free" sign on it. it would have been gone in a few hours easy.
