Roof's on !

I put the aluminum roof on today . Tomorrow i need to buy hinges for the doors and the hatching lid. Almost all the materials i used were recycled from our old barn , gotta love the savings!

Coops comin' along !

I built the hatching boxes and built the frame for the roof. I built almost the whole coop from the old pig barn wood. Tomorrow i will go thru the old aluminum roof pieces to find some good ones that will work !And yes, the first picture is me doing the chicken dance....

More coop !

Worked on the coop some more today. The window was an extra from the house so they will have a nice view. Maybe they will lay more eggs...

Chicken coop !

Today i started building our chicken coop. I decided to use the wood from the old sheep barn that was falling down. It will save cost on new material and the chick won't mind. Also cut up some firewood and Katie worked on sanding the drywall in the spare bedroom. That's one job i care not to do , i like building things !

Tile and a new addition to the family !

I mounted the cabinets , screwed down the countertops and finished the tile in the kitchen. Katie's happy and thats all that matters. Also , there's a new addition to the jeep family. My buddy Brad bought an 87' yj wrangler and stopped down to show it off. I found out just how many people you can fit in one, the answer is ( 6 ) ! Got some nice pics, ay !

Battery day !

Today i spent doing preventive maintance , the battery in the neon needed to be charged from sitting all winter. Which reminded me to check the solar batteries of water too, which i did. Even though we have electric from the grid we still use as much solar as we can ! The other day Katie made curtains for the bathroom and i started mudding the spare bedroom. We are having company for the holiday weekend and i have to get it ready for them. So i put off the tile in the kitchen for now cause the bedroom is priority. I also bought a minnow trap so i could catch the ones in the stream and transfer them to the pond so when i put larger fish in this year they will have plenty to eat.
