    That coop represents hours of work!!!! VERY nice job!!!

    Here's my pallet project this year...it took around 12 pallets to build and I still have a lot of the pallet frame/studs in my lumber pile, so more materials for building left over. LOVE those big pallets...they are the best! No hubby to do the build, so it's not as nice as most other pallet projects I see. That slide was on the curb in the trash and the tin for the roof was in one of Dad's old lumber piles we cleaned out this summer.

    All lumber besides pallets was reclaimed...found in the trash, brought home and screws removed. The screws were reused on this project and others. Built her table from an old bedstead we had here and that kitchenette was at GW for $10, as was the chair, pans, utensils, apron, etc. so the whole project cost around $40.

    In these pics I was still not quite finished with it but have since finished filling in walls and trim and adding a little set of deer antlers above the door, a keyhole for her key, bedazzling some places so the sun shines on them and sparkles and a few other decorative touches.

    Thanks everyone... my hubby really doesn't have great skills. When we first got married he told me he only can do rough wood working and he doesn't do toilets....:bow I will keep doing the toilets if he keeps doing these rough wood working things.....:thumbsup
