    First, we chose our site in the back yard. : ) [​IMG] Everyone, including our kiddos, helped lug the lumber and cement blocks up [​IMG] The first round of supplies! [​IMG] Measuring out parameters [COLOR=B42000][​IMG] [/COLOR] Top plates laid - everything is level now (took ALL day just to level the land!) [COLOR=B42000][​IMG] [/COLOR] Stringers Run [COLOR=B42000][​IMG] [/COLOR] 4 Ft. back wall up [​IMG] Starting on 6 Ft. front wall [​IMG] Front door fits the hubby! ; ) [COLOR=B42000][​IMG] [/COLOR] Working on the side walls with Daddy [COLOR=B42000][​IMG] [/COLOR] One of our little helpers [COLOR=B42000][​IMG] [/COLOR] Four walls up! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I will post more as the progress continues! In the interim, the chickens are enjoying the roomy confines of the 12 x 24 foot dog pen when they're not free-ranging. :) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
