We have about 10 loads of wash, so I'm just trying to catch up with it. And I spent 2 hours in the garden pulling weeds. I need another 10 hours to catch up with the weeds. But I planted all the vegetables I brought home from Italy. So much to do...so much to do. But I'm very happy to be home. It will take awhile before I can see my garden as anything but a weed patch, but I'll get there. And I'm afraid I'm on my own. Nicole can not afford to miss any school for the next 5 weeks. She has allot of art to work on. And after that she will be working at the summer camp. So my best helper is out of the game, and I'm going to have to just deal with it a few hours at a time. I just hope the weather improves. I still have to wear a coat outside. It feels more like March then June.
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.
