Getting Started

I started clearing the area for the coop on Thursday. I ran all the fallen limbs and leaf mulch through the wood chipper, cleared out the big rocks, and cut down the sassafras saplings that were in the way.

Friday was the first trip to Home Depot with the kids for materials. I bought the wood for the skids, flooring, framing, and roof. I forgot the concrete blocks, so we stopped by True Value in Mystic on the way back from Westerly.

Today I set the concrete blocks and leveled the foundation. Much digging and swearing was involved, but the skids are level.

Done for the day.
