After 5 months of weekends, the barn is finished. I now just have to add some finishing touches: paint, lights, cabinets, door knobs, shutters, and steps into the potting shed. My dad might even go as far as automating the chicken door and lights with solar sensors – awesome! My parents have been wonderful throughout this process supporting my crazy homesteading dream – chickens and all.
I have actually come to know my neighbors throughout this process: each coming over to pet a chicken, ask questions out of curiosity, or reminisce over guinea hen noises.
As worn out as I am now, I am excited to get back to work on the cute little barn in the spring. Pictures to come.
