Topic tags/keywords: chicken coop

you know things are real slow when im building a chicken coop in my shop ! the man that owns my lumber yard bought 10 acres of land W/ 2 homes on it and it came with a wild rooster and a goat ! lol since the property is in town and surrounded by condos ans such people are complaining about the roosters vocal capacity . so he asked me to build a coop to put him in . its about 6ft. x 6 ft. and 8 ft. high

chicken coop

Well, there you go, Mr T. Finish up that chicken coop, then he’ll need a barn for the goat. You better sound proof that coop, ‘cause that ain’t going to shut that rooster up. If he can see daylight, he’ll be telling everybody about it. Maybe you should be making him a barbeque pit. :0

It could be worse. You could come back to your shop to find your help tossing small scraps at the tablesaw… while it’s running!!! The rules were that if you were struck by a scrap you had to pay the other guy a dollar. After he cooled down the owner asked who had been tagged the most and then fired him. As of late there hasn’t been anymore “fun” with the tablesaw in his shop and the other guy has turned into model employee.

I’ve heard it said that God looks after ducks and damn fools. Maybe there’s something to it.

always,
J.C.

At least you have something to build MrTrim. I have not had any sales for awhile, so I am working on a house to re-sell. I guess that broadens my skills from wood working to general labor.

Thanks MrT. I am still working on the painting, and then the baseboards are next. It has taken longer than I thought, but am starting to see the results. I hope the real estate market steadies at least.

We are seeing small signs of it at least leveling off. After a month of no calls, we are at least picking up some work. Hope it continues.

I have a suggestion about your decision. You can go with the chicken hoop and make it perfectly. i am sorry that i can’t see the pictures uploaded. I wish to see those photos. Hope you will allow us to see that too. Thanks.
