Hen House ... A Sneak Peak ...

Well ... I had originally posted this on the 10th and linked up to some parties ... not sure what happened!?! Had the same thing happen with a post on my cooking blog as well on the 10th ... Anyway, here it is again :)

This has been my project for the past 10 days or so and my main reason to not getting to other crafty projects or my poor blog lately ... but I think the "chicks" appreciate it as they are growing so quickly and needed some more space to stretch their wings. Its not yet finished or positioned in its final location (our backyard ... which is a whole other project :-/ ) but I thought I would post a few pics of the progress we've been making! So ... here's a preview of our "Hen House"
The "Design" 

The materials - well most if it anyway!

My "Helpers"

The frame ... with the Hubby helping :)

Starting the sides ...

Break time ... or should I say "Vino Time" 

Adolescent hens checking out their new coop ... with my little chicks supervising :)

 Finally for some fun "decorative" stuff ... I love how the door turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by ... I love your comments so please feel free and make sure to check back for more updates and pics of the finished project :)
