    after a month and a half of building the coop is built! It's insulated, there's electricity! The chicken door is "draw bridge" style. Hubby and I are in no way carpenters but did really well on our own! If someone can tell me if I'm allowed to post the URL to my blog I'll do so there's more explanation and pictures. anywho... here's the finish product...

    Are you sure you two are "non-carpenters"?? It is fantastic!! Make sure you have plenty of ventilation....much more important than one would think.

    Great Job!! [​IMG]

    Looks great, but I don't see any sort of ventilation windows or holes?
