    Wow!
    You guys are very elaborate.

    We're trying to convert an old wooden swingset into a coop, and discovered that we're not as young as we used to be. I've been exercising but obviously not enough. I've discovered a whole new set of muscles that ache!!

    Wow, plans. That would have been a good idea before we started building! Oh well, too late now.

    Looks very nice by the way!

    What a wonderful chicken house, Christine. I'm so impressed! [​IMG] Obviously those sore muscles/back/shoulders/hands are well worth the aches. This coop looks like it can withstand anything Mother Nature will throw at it.
    Thanks for all the pics! I'm so envious when I see beautifully done buildings going up. And so easily done, too.... [​IMG]

    Really nice job! It's helpful to see the in-process pics too.

    When can I move in?? All I need is a cable TV/Internet connection and some air/heat and I'm good to go as long as you'll let me come in side and use the shower once in a while...

    I was kidding on the easy part, Christine. [​IMG] Obviously you've put a lot of hard physical work into this. And it really is paying off. It's one thing to work strenuously for a day; the hard part is picking it up again a day or two later when the muscles are screaming NO! NO! NO!
    I hope dh's fingers are feeling better.

    Yeah, we thought about getting out there again today but figured three days in a row would kill us. [​IMG]
