{Projects Around The Harvest House} Part VI

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

Lately we've been busy laying pavers in our backyard we purchased off of Craigslist.
A little elbow grease + patience = a mud free walk to our rain barrels.

We also laid pavers by the coop since we had already worn a path in the grass getting our eggs.
Pavers mean no more stepping in chicken sheet to change out their water and feed. {Win}

Speaking of feed, we made a new feeder out of 3" PVC pipe, 2 end caps, an elbow fitting & some zip ties.
Suspending it above the ground has helped keep pine chips, mud, and chicken poop out of their grub. 

We also decided to raise the coop using some lumber we found in bulk trash pick up a few months ago.

Now it has a sturdier base and gives us a little more head room when we clean it.

Lastly, we finally got around to polyurethaning our porch swing! Sheesh. Let the horizontal rain begin. Thanks for following along with us as we try and make the Harvest House a home.
Our next big project involves running electrical out to the garden fence for hanging lights.
Who better to enlist for help than this guy?
