If you know my wife Katie, then you’re probably aware that she brings a certain energy and initiative to life… in other words, she’s a real “go-getter.” This was on full display when she 1) had 3 chicks living in the guest shower within 2 days of making up her mind that we should get them, and 2) made the coop you see pictured here her first real building project and successfully designed and completed it on her own with lightning speed (I, for one, was baffled).
Add to that the fact that the coop was built in full compliance with South Main’s architectural review standards. After all, “the principles apply at all scales” in the words of her brother Jed.
We now enjoy 3 fresh eggs each day, courtesy of Foxy, Luna and Pacha, who have the run of the garden and yard now that growing season is over. They’re fun for the kids, and all it takes is a heat lamp to keep them warm at night (which also creates an interesting effect for photos).
