Chicken Coop - Day 5

Today Brian Did a lot of the roof, and we placed the chicken coop in the back of our garden.

 The chickens are going to have the best view.
I couldn't help admiring our work in the late sunlight.

Chicken Coop - Day 4

Brian finished the main construction.
I painted the wall boards we had so far, with the base coat, and Brian cut some more.
It is beginning to look like a barn, don't you think?

Chicken Coop - Day one

We have decided, we want chickens in our garden, and we want to build them a pretty little chicken coop.

I love the look of old fashioned red barns like these:

Last night, we sketched and came up with this first draft:
We began building it today and found the construction more sturdy than we had imagined, so the supporting beams were not nessesary. We changed a few other details in the process as well.
Here is where we are so far:
It took most of the day, because we had to go and buy wood and a few tools. Also Brian was very perfectionistic with everything.

But will you look at that! - I'm very proud of his work.
