You guessed it, saw dust. That smell is the smell of progress in my book.
My Dad even stopped by and lent a hand. There is something about experience that comes in handy when youth cannot help you.
We worked until all the wood was gone. I drew it, measured it and dreamed about it for weeks and still came up short on the wood. I need 15 more 2x4s and 1 more piece of plywood. I thought I had enough to do the doors but......
Tomorrow I plan to at least get the wire on and the doors built. The outside runs will come later. As long as I get it all done by March there is no rush.
Next week the weather is turning nasty and cold so we are trying to get everything done this weekend.
If you are wondering why there is a wood top on a chicken pen, it is for storage space. If I did not build the top then I would not have a place to build anything else in the barn. This gives me a place to put all the junk I have collected that I will never use but cannot though away.
