    I'm actually building two of these and a covered porch. I built the floor this morning before work, and will finish the walls tomorrow (maybe the nest boxes, too). I wish I could devote a whole day to building this, but I have to work it in around chores, work and family obligations. I'm so excited - the girls are finally getting a home of their very own!

    Aw, shucks, everyone.... I've never built anything before, so I appreciate the encouragement! The walls go up today, and I'll post the pictures.

    I'm so glad you're building this!!!

    I was planning on building one of these for my Seramas, but we're moving, so I'll be building it a bit later.

    I hope you post pics of your progress!!!
    Looks good so far! [​IMG]

    Alien Chick, I LOVE your photo.

    Any updated photos of the coop? I'd love to see how it turns out.
