A Great Graduation Gift!

As a graduation gift from my husband, Michael, our shed was converted into a dual shed/chicken coop! Michael had some of his very handy and helpful friends come over a few weeks ago for a Saturday and they worked hard for an entire day to get everything finished up. I am pleased to share that everything looks great and I couldn’t be more happy or excited with how it turned out! The back half of the shed is caged off with a door and has nice linoleum floors, two nesting boxes, and two roosts. There was a small window near the ceiling (in addition to the two existing windows) added to help ammonia escape, and the top portion of the caged area has a large shelf for storage. There is a small (locking) chicken door with a ramp so the girls can go outside to their run and enjoy the fresh air while Mike and I are at work. The outdoor run has another door that we’ll open when we’re home so the girls can roam our yard. I think they’re going to love it!

At some point, Mike is going to do a little write up about the plans, materials needed, and costs incurred during this conversion. So keep an eye out for it!
