|The rough outline of the coop and run (view from our back yard).|
|A wicked lot of dirt was involved in the leveling of the future chicken home foundation. Apparently, the "flat" spot in our yard wasn't so much...|
By the way, as I look through this post, I realized that I've somehow developed the odd collecting behavior of an old man... Why on Earth else would I have acquired 9 old doors, or saved the giant windows that were nailed to the back of our shed (but didn't go to anything on our house) when we moved in, or said to my Mom 3 years ago, "can we have a bunch of those railroad ties?" It's also equally weird that my mom ever had a stash of railroad ties to give away in the first place. But it's all working out now because I'm using all this crap to build an epic chicken coop! I understand completely that that statement doesn't make me sound any less crazy...
Thanks for stopping by,
