    It isn't finished yet. I am going to paint it white with green trim. It should be done by this weekend. I just started it yesterday and hope to have it finished Sunday. I hope to get my coop yard covered with Aviary netting, but don't know. I want to spend less than $50 on it. It's a little over 4'x3' and 54" high at the peak.

    Okay guys, don't laugh... [​IMG] I know it looks bad. The building is an OLLLLLD dog house and we are in the middle of replacing the roof. We are using black shingles .

    It'll look better once I get the paint on it. I have the paint, for main and trim, just have to have light. Hopefully it won't rain this weekend [​IMG] Mom should install shingles tomorrow. We have black vinyl stuff since we didn't see any tar paper for cheap. The vinyl was a CL find for free

    LOOKING GOOD.

    I would probably have put down some linoleum but that's just me.

    I put lanoleum in mine as well just as a little added protection against moisture and any fluids that may be floating around inside the coop! I bought the cheapest tiles I could and for my 4 x 8 coop, I think I spent $14 on flooring.

    Well, I love the weathered patina that older wood takes on. It looks pretty sturdy, and should do a fine job. I am a big fan of 'green' projects. Recycle, reuse, renew! Good job!
