Got a good deal on the french doors,my sister took them out of her house and put in new ones.Hope to get a lot done today with dh home.Going to get as much painting done as possible going to rain for days after today!!
I was hoping your weather was better and was looking forward to pics!
Still raining here too - need to get the new little coop delivered but no chance of that in this weather! It's been solid rain all day, the past week actually. Right now it's raining so hard the back yard looks like a lake even at night. Enough! Some of the flowers I planted are rotting in the ground.
I just read in the newsletter of the Texas and SW Cattle Raisers Association that over the long term rainfall is increasing in the US. Some of you may find that a lot easier to believe than we do here. So far this year we have had less than 2" of rain - total - and most of that was in January.
Dh went next door and got carpenter boy and they got a lot done in the afternoon,he stayed for supper and they worked untill dusk,made him prominise to come back today said he would,but its raining a little this morning.
Put up some trim today,and the other door is in,cut some holes for ventilation in the eves.was going to try to get shingles on but I don`t think they will do that today.I run out of paint for the trim so have to go get some tonight.
Going to get electicity put in thursday or friday,Then hopefuly insulate,still a lot to do.Annie I don`t think he would go he is so sick of building for me and says don`t ask for any more additons or anything.LOL
Still need to get the trim on,beautiful today and dh worked a little on the inside but had to go to work.Other capenter called and will be here tomorow to start electical,that was a surprise for me,so glad dh decided to do that,will need safe electical for winter with heat lamps heated waters and such,will be quite an expense but a needed one.I don`t know if you can see the silkies looking at there new home and waiting so patiently.
All insulated today and all the trim is up.Got grass seed down where we had to dig up for electic wire.Mowed lawns,weed wacked.cleaned pool or tried the pump kept shuting down,painted floor in coop,and am to tierd to take pictures and post them,will later.Good nite everyone
Got outside trim on and yesterday I got the blocks layed in front of the door for the steps.Is anyone els having problems posting pictures?It takes forever I switched over to firefox but it make no difference.
Inside,I found this paint at a thrift store think I will do the walls in it to,its called eggshell.The ceiling will be white.This angle is looking in the green entance door,the gate is where the old entrance door was and the little one is where the silkies will come in from the exsisting run.The outside poop door was already there on the other side of the white wall and led into a cage on the floor so we didn`t have to cut another hole in the coop.They have ventured into the cage part but not into the big room.We still have 10 pieces of pressed board to put on the walls and ceiling then we will be done.Was hoping to have this done before the baby silkies hatched under the broody in the little coop so she could have the whole coop for her and the babies untill they got a little bigger.Today is hatching day for her,she has 13 eggs hope the all hatch.
Got walls done today and some of the ceiling.Its high and we couldn`t find anyone to help us,so he cut the 4x8 sheets in half so he could handle them easier.I have three new baby silkies that I can see maybe more.
