Well folks, here it is. I dove in and got my hands dirty and this is the results of my first days efforts. I have a wonderful hubby who would do anything for me but he works hard and is gone 6 days 5 nights a week so I decided it was time for me to attempt to do something for myself for a change. It's not like I don't have the time. I have little knowledge of construction type stuff and am in general not considered a mechanical type person either. This was a total by the seat of my pants and I can't even find the level so....who knows. Tomorrow, wheels and a nesting box and perch. Maybe a roof also, we will see how quickly it all comes together.
