Which one did you guess?
If you guessed number 5 you'd be right! Now you really think I'm a freak! And I'm not going to say you're wrong. I've been begging Paul for a chicken coop for the past 10+ years. I love the idea of having my own fresh eggs. And having chickens running around the place.
I'm kind of hoping if I blog it, Paul will build it, and the chickens will come. Do you think I could be that lucky? I'll let you know.
This is the last original building on our land aside from the barn. It's an old smokehouse.
We used to have quite a few of these little sheds around, but we tore them down as they were in such bad shape. Now, the barn is in terrible condition, and we hope to eventually tear it down and rebuild (in a different location). In the future, I will scan some pics of the old homestead buildings to show you. But for now, this little shed is the only building that could possibly be a hold out.
I'd like to hang on to this small bit of history.
It definitely needs some work. The floor is rotting, the roof is bad, you can see the holes in it.
But how perfect would it be as a chicken coop?
Yup, it needs a good cleaning out to be sure. Just for starters.
I like chickens. I hope one day we can provide a nice home for some.
Is there something relatively inexpensive that you've been dreaming of for over 10 years?
