Of course it was a little worn as it was secondhand and needed all the wood treating to refresh the weather proofing, incidentally my neighbours thinks its hilarious that all the wood work in our garden is painted the same colour, they think Im super OCD or something, actually I bought way to much blue paint when we did the shed so rather than fork out for a different colour when I have a tin and a half left everything is now blue! The up side is it is now quite hard to tell what we have built out of old pallet wood and whats new (the shed..the sheds new...literally the only time we've spend money on something new, everything else is made by Rich out of gash wood!).
Of course the minuet we finished the coop we both ended up with a load of jobs and orders coming in plus a planning proposal to submit so we haven't had the time to go buy the actual chickens yet!! But they are coming soon…. failing that I will just have to make some cardboard cut-outs at which point the neighbours really will think we are mental!
