Re-building the chicken coop #3, day 1
Yesterday was spent building the frame, cladding and getting the roof sorted then the whole thing got a coat of stain.The side design was an accident - we were just trying to use as many pieces of ply to fill the space- but I love it : I think it looks like mountains. The sign is painted in chalkboard paint, perhaps we can keep an egg tally or a note of which chickens are 'in'!
Today: cladding the back and sides,putting a door handle on, lifting it up into place, painting the back fence, trimming back a tree, planting an apricot tree in the coop and building the run. Yikes! better get on with it.
