    0509171033_HDR.jpg It inspired my turkey coop! No fancy metal roofing though. Can't be used in winter really anyway.but all this stuff was hanging around our house too!

    Actually just started a second one tonight.

    That is an awesome coop. My dh is the pack rat here and I am so glad he is because I am always looking for scrap this and that and it's now become my "treasure pile" too. Good name for it.

    Cow Panels are the greatest! I had to buy the screws, hinges for the door and the rest was scrap.

    My name is Baymule and I am a scrounger.

    My name is Bee and I scrounge also. Scrounged free treated and untreated stickers and 50% off damaged or warped wood from Lowe's yesterday and intend to return there today and scrounge for a full 4x4 rick of stickers if they are willing to let me scoop them up. Pallets too.

    I scrounge for things left out in the trash with no shame at all...if they had no shame in throwing out perfectly great things, I have no shame in adopting these rescues and bringing them to a good home. :D

    I've found that most town folk have no storage for things like scrap lumber and such, so will put things out in the trash more easily than country folk. I've found some GREAT things just driving through towns.
