Have I mentioned that my husband is a genius? Well, he’s a genius.
A genius that spotted some really excellent 4′x5′x3′ crates in a parking lot near our house, then met with the owner of said crates who agreed to let us have them for free, and then, with the help of the wonderful Michael Durham, brought said crates, along with lots of pallets, back to our house.
Which means that so far we have spent only 45 dollars on the coop – which includes a door and window we haven’t yet installed.
And all we’ll have to buy is the tin roofing, siding, laminate flooring, and chicken wire.
Here are some pics from this week’s progress.

Have I mentioned how much I love our back yard? I love our back yard.
