Today I finished installing the siding on the chicken coop.
Working on the west wall.
West wall done.
Working on the north wall.
North wall done, and working on the east wall.
All walls finished.
West and south again.
Today Jenn continued her painting of the coop; now all of the trim boards and soffits have been painted, just waiting for the siding.
Meanwhile, I finished installing ground barriers, installed the cute weathervane, and made a ramp for the pop door.
Painting done (other than siding), and weathervane installed.
Another view of the weathervane and painting.
Today I took advantage of some fine weather to do a bit more on the coop, including mounting the poop door, and installing hardware cloth under the coop.
This is the poop door — a hatch below the roosts, that will enable me to more easily clean out the coop. The door is missing a handle on the left side currently. Though maybe I should move the handle to the middle? Not sure having handles on each side is all that useful after all.
Digging a trench below the edge of the wall.
Stapled on some hardware cloth (wire fencing), to keep the chickens (and other animals) out from under the coop. The top will be covered by the bottom of the siding.
