It’s been 5 L-O-N-G years but we finally moved in.
The Farmhouse is
finally, almost, getting close to complete. But we are in it anyhow.
I will start with sorta the beginning.
Kinda the beginning.
Our little chicken helpers. WOW do they ever look young!
That’s me supervising!
The ever bare front
They all hafta get into the building
Siding all finished
My rooster and our two boys built this home exclusively by themselves from the ground up. Nothing was hired out except the brick.
VERY TALENTED MAN I HAVE!
My chicks made tables and chairs to eat on while we built. We ate out here all summer.
Summer after siding went up
My oldest rooster only 16 then
Back of the house completely sided
From the back 40
Unveiling the inside. My rooster felled the ash trees from our property, had them milled, dried and delivered then he put them down, stained them, clear coated them and then protected them with paper. We unveil them here.
Remember those 3 little chicks? All grown up now!
The view from my kitchen and dining room
In my kitchen
The dining room with a view. You can see a panoramic view of the entire back property. Breathtaking!
My beautiful hutch. :) Every cabinet, every piece of trim, every everything in this roost was CUSTOM made with
tears love by my rooster.
The farmhouse chicks!
The beginnings of the front porch
My beautiful petunias on the front porch
Down by the river and cabin
So there you have it. Our roost just about done. My roosters are all puffed up and pretty cocky now! Us chickens are just glad to have extended our coop!
This brood is one happy family!
Farmhouse Party coming soon!
