The new chickies new a place to be happy so off to the woods we go. We decided on a place close to the boys tree house. The trashy trailer was in the way so we had to move it.
We headed to Springerville to rent a trencher to run power and water. This will make the job easier.
Martin is use to putting the keys on the seat at home. Well little Kari decided to get in the drivers seat to pretend she was driving down the road. Either she stepped on the remote button or stepped on the lock button on the door. She wouldn’t confess. All we know the girls were inside and we were locked outside.
Within 30 minutes the locksmith picked our lock with a new special tool. He charged only 20 bucks. It was worth 50 bucks to us. He was so thankful.
Back home Martin began the trenching process.
After returning the trencher……it was time to get busy.
After building the first wall we dropped into place.
The north wall is 12” higher in elevation so we buried it 18”. The mesh bottom will help keep the critters from digging under.
Just after setting in the east wall Mother Nature decided to bless us with a sprinkling of snow. Looks like an afternoon in the house.
By this time we both are getting stronger. Bending, lifting, hammering and cutting. It feels good to get our hands busy again.
Too funny for that memory to come up on a chicken coop building day.
It’s roof day!!! What an exciting day.
