Kyra did it all, with kiddo support - design (Youtube assisted), Costco canopy amputation, chicken wire install, bottom boards, metal, etc. A canopy top was added, then suspended feeder and waterer. Josh said if chickens were to be done, Kyra would have to own it, and she did before chicks arrived!
As part of an arduous effort attaching the bottom plates to the concrete, a Diablo bit simplified setting anchors, but the 2" foam vertically set in the floor was a pain. Then framing took a few weeks, but to pull the diagonal braces, we added sheeting in the parlor. Then we ran the painted plywood soffit was added in preparation for metal. Scott sacrificed a few Saturdays - thanks a bunch!
Uncle Joe and Aunt Audra thrilled the four oldest with this 2011 rider. They purchased a new trailer and added a 3/4" painted plywood reinforcing layer. This combo brought poor Kellen (the inexperienced and under-resourced business mechanic) out of despair over two broken down riders.
This first of the Homestead Club harvest blew our minds. We made kraut with ours. It was interplanted with beets, which it choked mostly out. Behind the girls potatoes dominated. We had people drive slowly by on the road overlooking; it was astonishingly productive.
