Construction Zone

Our backyard is a construction zone at the moment. All Sunday afternoon and some of yesterday was spent starting our chicken coop. The top pic is from our bedroom window. Kind of neat that each morning when I wake up I can check on them from the window. Grace is uber excited to hurry up and get the chickens.
We were able to get the frame built and part of the nesting boxes. With hubby being in the steel business we were able to get all of our wood and the metal we used for free. All repurposed items that would have gone in the trash heap at his business. Very little will have to be purchased other than the feeders, litter, hay for the nesting boxes and the metal roof.

That is so exciting! One day we are hoping to be able to keep chickens and other small farm animals. I can't wait to read more about your experience!

How wonderful that you were able to get most of the materials for free!
