Coop Frame, South Side
Framing, if you're infernally weak like I am, will. wear. you. out. if you do it all day. I had to take lots of breaks. I also had to, get this, drill pilot holes for the nails I was using because I'd bend them before I got them driven home.
So that's the south side of the coop section, framed for the old window you sort of see leaning against the plywood (it's the thing that looks like a blue window), a header for the floor joists, and then a framed section that will be covered in hardware cloth under the coop section so the girls will have some shade to find on summer mornings. On summer afternoons the run will be in complete shade.
I honestly think this was the hardest side because of the window, and I'm glad I started with it.
