It’s been all kinds of busy on the farm this week. Keith and I purchased all the lumber and supplies for building the chicken coops, and set to work cutting and framing.
It’s been so much fun! I like construction – it’s so satisfying to measure, cut and nail things together.
It’s been an educational week. I’ve learned to draw up building plans, something Keith is really good at, being an Engineer and all. I figured out how to use a chop saw to cut the lumber down to size. Then, with the help of our good friends Brian and Rob, I learned to frame walls and roofs.
We’ve been getting up early and hitting the fields as soon as the sun comes up, so we can get a lot done before it gets too hot and before Keith has to go to work at his “real job”!
Soon we will be finished with some welding projects on the trailers and then the building will go up. I’ll be posting more pictures of our progress soon, so stay with me.
