Our good friend’s the Starrs, have decided to raise a few chickens in their backyard. Who wouldn’t want fresh organic eggs on a regular basis? So I offered to help them build a coop.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed building things. Whether it was forts in the backyard as a kid, or making a ring-box for my wife, I’ve loved the creative aspect of building. My grandfather was a skilled carpenter, so I wonder if I got some of this from him.
I also enjoy finding useful objects that others are just going to throw away. So I checked out our alley and found some great pieces of wood, hinges, handles, and wire mesh to be used on the chicken coop. As of this point we have yet to spend any money on this project!
It may sound strange, but I’m really enjoying the planning and building of this coop! I’ll keep you updated on the process.
And if your wondering why I have two different shirts on, it’s because the photos are from two different days of work. 🙂 Thanks for the pictures Rose!
