I like projects.
Red wants to get chickens and we have no coop. What we do have is a 4 stall barn. We decided to convert a stall into a coop
|Stall from the outside.|
|First we put this orange construction netting over the rafters to make a ceiling. The netting is left over from another project.|
We stapled it into place. Well, I did, anyway.
Ceiling is almost done. It took awhile and a lot of standing on the ladder.
We nailed these plywood boards to the open front and sides of the stall to close it in.
Front all closed in.
On the side wall we had to put up 2x4's as support beams for the plywood.
My dad helped with this part and the plywood. :)
Then we had to put more orange netting over the door opening. The 2x4s are also being reused from another project.
The project ended up taking only about 4 hours. We get our chickens very soon! They're just going to be little fluff balls on legs at first, but they'll grow up quickly. I won't get to see them much, though, since we're leaving on tour in less than a week and won't be home for a few weeks. People will be at our house. Just not me. :) So no pictures of them.
