    Hi. well some of you may remember last springs coop renovation. Well I kinda need an addition for my new addiction. So my hubby is building the addition out of all i mean all recycled material. Every piece is from left over construction jobs from us and neighbors. We are not even buying new nails. All of this material was getting scrapped so we hope it works out well.

    My plain is to make the new coop look like a replica* of my house, and my old coop look like the barn. I hope all goes well. Construction started yesterday.

    Old coop remodel last spring.

    I love it! And WTG on recycling!!! That's FANTASTIC.

    We're not trying to buy any new materials either. I'm freecycling stuff and using what's already on the property. *fingers crossed*

    Good luck finishing it!
