Coop Building Day One

Update Update Update!
There are a few things that occured since I last posted. We had originally decided to put the dog house together and use the 3 segments of roofing from the kennel as the enclosure. Well the plans didn't exactly work out...

Here's the chainlink/chicken wire fence segments

On July 1st I went to Home Hardware to purchase a "Barn Style" 8 X 8 Shed kit. The lady at home hardware is truly one of the worst employees I've ever encountered. She sold me the shed, no plans, I asked that the materials be delivered to the house and it was like I was asking for the moon. After some "discussion" she said it would be delivered on the Monday instead of that Saturday. The shed, well I should say the lumber was delivered, not where I asked for it to be put, no hardware and still no plans. The next day, Lee and I rushed to Home Hardware to get the plans and the hardware. The same lady argued with me that the hardware had been delivered. I think it was delivered that day.

The Shed...

Mid July we took a quick trip to Calgary we were in need of a few tools... Obviously. We got a smokin' deal on a DeWalt 12' Double Bevel Mitre Saw & Stand. We also bought a few "toys" for around the house. Lee and Danny set-up the saw

The Saw
For the last few days we've had the chickens out in the creates (minus the plastic bottom) They've grown fast in the last month...


It's been a hot weekend! Even the pups didn't have the energy to do much!

Day one... Building the frame and joists for the floor, placing the pavers... Starting way toooo late! ad the Home Hardware "detailed" plans for their Barn Style stick shed SUCK! They are not complete in any way, shape or form! We should sue them for false advertizing!!!! they only have the complete plans for how to build the floor and 2 side walls. Even their OWN builders said that they would never sell that shed! Nor could they provide any more detail. We will be posting the plans and  the cut list.measurements once we are done. Who cares what they say about copy right, I'll simply rename the project and add WAAAAAAAY more detail.

Placing the pavers

Cutting 2X4 (which by the way are really 1.5 X 4 )

Lee screwing in the frame for the floor

Yupp, almost level!

Well that's the update for day one. Day two and maybe three will be posted tomorrow.
