    We won't start building until the spring, but I was out with the camera tonight during lockup and thought I'd snap a few panorama photos. This will be the new barn area. The clearing will be "filled" with barn and the fencing will wrap out into the forest :) Thought I'd share.

    Feel free to add your own photos. I love seeing people's barn/pens/locations :lovey:

    Re: New Barn Location (w/ reference pix)

    Thought I'd update. We've got about 3/4 of the lumber made, we just need to get the supports done. My husband is taking vacation days in June and we'll start building. Hoping to start & complete it relatively shortly. :)

    ETA: The barn will be almost mirror image to the new chicken house we built. Except it will be considerably larger and will most likely have dutch doors.

    Looks really nice. We just had to add ventilation to our chicken house yesterday, so I am appreciating your trio of side windows there.

    Any pictures of the inside set-up?

    There's also 2 windows on the other side and 1 larger window in the back gable end. It's nice and ventilated lol. I'll see if I can find any inside shots for you. It's pretty basic.

    ETA: Here's a link to our FB Page. In the Mobile Uploads, there are a few shots from the building process, including some interior shots.

    Thanks guys. My husband is actually happy with it, which is a shocker because he's a perfectionist. Hence his "walk away" attitude when the fence didn't turn out like he wanted it too. Maybe one of these days, he'll finish it. lol

    Shell,

    I love the coop! Nice job. And I must admit to being a tad bit envious that your grandpa has a saw mill. :sigh: We just sold some wood to a logger and are waiting to find out how much we made. Kinda' wish we had checked into doing a saw mill.

    What do you treat the wood with?

    Just another update...

    Exterior walls are finished. Rafters and metal roofing go up tomorrow. Depending on how long that takes, we might get the barn doors built as well. Hoping to have it completely fenced in within the month. Cross your fingers.

    Picture was before that side's barn boards were trimmed to proper height.
