    I put R-13 in the walls yesterday along with what siding I have on it. Working by yourself I use a lot of dead man post and sticks.

    Thanks, never could have imagined the work involved.

    That's a lovely coop!
    I wish we had the skills to be able to bang one together, but ours are going to have to stick with their shed [​IMG]

    Thanks y'all. Yeah Morgan's my only help. He's been with me over 3 1/2 years now. I found him at 5 weeks, the vet said he was five anyway. The coop will have 3 windows and more vents. I remember all the ammonia from my time raising horses. Very strong for sure. More progress everyday. My problem is I have other thing I have to do, such as mowing 5 acres as soon as I get off the computer. Then work the garden a little, and back on the coop. My wife says I have tunnel vision. All I see is chickens.[​IMG] Not me!
