The Coop

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.

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.

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.

Wow! I didn't realize how long you had been working on the house until I saw the pictures of the girls. This has been some time in coming eh! ;) The picture of your Rooster with his shower cap and water goggles on has got to be my favorite! Priceless! :D
