So the chickens have lived in the coop all winter. Well the hens have anyway. But everyone got booted outside this week while the weather has been 75 degrees! The temporary pallet walls and plastic all came down and the real walls, siding, and roof all went up. Today Kevin was working on the finishing touches to the wall separating the two sections of the coop. He’s using recycled wood from pallets to create a see through wall. I love it! The foundation of the coop is made from recycled steel posts from one of the solar job sites. I always love it when we can incorporate used/recycled objects in our constructing. We will be tiling the floor soon and then the birds get to move back in. Right now they are under the roof eave in our transport cage.
The small animal barn is made in a similar fashion. Recycled steal posts from solar job sites and the stalls inside will be constructed from pallets. It’s coming along nicely as well. Everything is a mess but it’s a construction zone. Trim and finishing touches will all come later.
