Chicken Koop

That hole in the ground in the last post is the beginning of a chicken Koop.  

Mr. K being the awesome designer that he is, made me a 3D model of the Koop in Google SketchUp.
The K-boys pitched in to help dig the hole.  K2 made dinner so the rest of us could keep working.

The next morning the gravel was delivered.
 K1 is so strong!  He helped shovel in the gravel after they got the base framed and put in.
K2 helping with the framing.  He looks excited.

 Mr. K and K1 lowering the wire floor in.  It goes under the gravel to keep "burrowing predators" out.

Once we got the gravel shoveled in on top of the wire floor, we realized that we had a lot left over.  We decided to use the rest to build a little gravel path to the egg box so the kids won't get muddy when they collect the eggs.  Back to shoveling.
The rafters are on and K3 is sitting in the Koop.  Maybe that can be the new time out chair.

Just call me Starr.

Decking Finished

On Friday Mr. K finished all of the decking on the front deck!  Here he is putting in the last screw.

I am soooooooo excited!

We need to put the railing up but it looks like we have a new project first...
