A "Fowl" project I've been working on

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

In the spirit of the Challenge I've been building a chicken condo.  I haven't framed anything in years, but it wasn't too far out of reach.  I had to re-do one thing glad I screwed the side walls together.  After I framed and decked it I assembled the panels on it then clamped everything down before clearing the deck and nailing down vinyl sheet flooring.  The back wall will be a swing out door for clean out.

 

Here's my soon to be 3yr. old grandson helping me bring some studs up the hill - that's two 8 footers he has on his shoulder.

 

 

 

 

That's a 9-1/2 inch drop in 7 feet.  I haven't framed a skillion roof in about 25 yrs., but it sure was fun to lay out.  I earned that cold beer.

We have six Rhode Island Reds and six Bard Rocks.  They are 8 weeks old and staying in two dog pens so I need to wrap this up next week and get a run together.  Out of the twelve we have three roosters so two will go in the pot - Coq Au Vin anyone?
