Busy Season

Spring always brings more projects, and this one has been busier than most. The new hen house has been going up, the garden has been plowed, and we are just getting started on some major landscaping around the house.

I've finally gotten to the point where I can take a moment to share how construction of the hen house has been progressing.

We're building a 10' x 16' hen house. It will have plenty of room for the flock to grow and have storage and other features to make it nice for people too.

For those who are interested, I made up some basic plans for the building in powerpoint. They aren't complete plans, just drawings to scale. If you want to use them, just e-mail us for a copy.

You can see I had plenty of help with this project.
