It looks like our renter may buy another house. In fact, I would encourage them to do it because it seems like a good deal for them. I would love to sell the house in Leimen, but I guess I would also be ok if we just rent again. I have to believe God has a will, and I am going to pray for His perfect will to be done. http://heymannhaus.blogspot.de/ We are going to hire a gardener to put in roll grass and a new fence in the back yard. I'll plant roses along the new fence. It will be lovely. http://www.quoka.de/immobilien-haeuser/reihenhaeuser/c2660a115850541/privat-reh-direkt.html
Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.
