From a Pile of Lumber

Monday, March 24, 2008


Well, this was a productive weekend. Courtney got most of the framing and some of the roof sub on. It's really beginning to look like a little house! Not much in the way of prepping the garden, but that will come in time... that and the manure that goes with it...

Many of the fencing posts are up now as well. It will be nice to get the structure fenced in. Then the ladies will almost be able to waddle right on in.

Courtney will be building a small open-sided shed next to the hen house to store the lawn tractor & the feed & what not. That's a project for a little later this summer though.

Still trying to figure out what kind of ladies to use... we want egg layers - good ones. And they need to be cold hardy since we probably won't heat the house this winter... at least we'll see how it goes. So, if you have any suggestions, send them this way!!

It's starting to look good. It's a bit bigger than I thought it would be. Those chickens are going to be laying in style :)

Those little "waddlers" will be fenced in all the time, right?
