    Boards were lag bolted all over.. LOL, so dont laugh too much, and yes, my concept didnt actually work.. with the top 2x4, due to netting still on corners of it, so hoping it doesnt eventually rip through.. No way did I ever need a 50 x 50 net, and now my view.. since first was chickens.. is completely obstructed from where we enjoy hanging out.. by having the coop in the WAAAAAAAAAAAY..WA, WA.. WA.. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...

    BUT, its done!!!!

    Now , next- a run in type of shed.

    MMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNNN.. LOL, how long will that take???

    I must say you did WIN!!! Pooh haha
    I am so JEALOUS of your tree. I have no clue what I am going to do for an outdoor roost.
    You are so Lucky!!!
    Pretty birds! I love the pied male he is so pretty. I love it when younger males try and compare themselves to older ones it is so sweet.
    Haha congrats!! Glad you got your netting up! I AM JEALOUS once again!!!

    Don't be..I now kinda wish, I could have don't tall post in the ground and then just bolt across 2x4

    That's all you have to do and then u will have their roost

    Iam really confused because I went out and took the night time photo a few hours later and something looks different..for instance if u compare the tree during the day and night..doesn't it look like some boards came undone..oh crap....

    It's pitch black out their so I can only see what shows up in the photos..but staring at the tree with my peacock on it compared to the day photo..where did that extra boards go?

    Do u see what I see,? Heck guess I will know in the morning. ...

    And thank u, now iam hoping the tree grows in and fills out with leaves extra sense I chopped so much off..

    It's a berry tree too, they will all love it

    Thanks so much
    Xoxox

    And u will be done before u know it it..remember I had a good two weeks start ahead of u and netting laying on the ground for a week. I bet u get yours up much faster, so you actually kinda win..

    Unless, u get the netting and you too let it sit on the ground..

    I had 4 guys help me..too, btw, their was no way I could have done it..and finally..finally..finally my husband helped me..yeeehawww​

    Hmm the tree does look diffrent did oyu take the picture from a diffrent angle? But either way it looks AMAZING. I hope I dont let me netting sit around. Hmmm
    I got a dog run that I am going to tarp for a shelter and just add it on to their pen so I might be able to squeeze another peacock. Haha I love your pics!

    So the other peas didn't want to roost out there on the tree? I would have thought all of them would be up there enjoying the tree...That tree will be great when it gets leaves as long as the peafowl don't eat the new leaves off first.

    Well my netting still isn't here, so YOU DEFIANTLY DID WIN!!!!
    I took out the metal pole and got a 15 foot tall wood post so I can screw my bird house to it.
    I am also putting a board across it once I get it concreted into the ground. My wife thinks that it will look like a cross so she really doesn't like the idea at all. Neither do I now that she has been yelling at me.
    Anyway I will post pics once I figure it all out.
    Wish I had a tree like yours. SO JEALOUS again hehe

    Oh yeah did you have any boards fallen down?
