Here's what we did. See all those little screws down there? We pounded them lightly into the pre-drilled holes, then someone came behind and screwed them in. Someday when we have nothing better to do, we'll have to count the screws in this deck.
We got a boyfriend for our chickens. The chickens came from our friends Tad and Denise (he's also our builder). We just turned them loose up under a big bush and to be real honest, I thought they'd become coyote food in the first few days, but all 5 hens have survived and Ival's niece Jennifer brought this Goliath rooster up (he chased her kids) and the girls seem to think he's pretty awesome. He really is beautiful. He chased Adam today.
Monday they bring up the crane. Can't wait to have a roof. Speaking of which, this is exactly what our roof will look like...
It's a little building they've put up out at Harris Ranch. It's 22 gauge raw steel roof with something like a 100-year warranty. I think that will do. It rusts naturally which I really like the idea of. What do you think?
I think I like it!
