As some of you know, I had the Chicken Mansion moved in this Spring and fixed up an area for Eleanor, Rosa and Amelia. It’s been crazy hectic around here ever since the weather got better (it’s better, really?) and because of that, I am just now getting some time to finish off the rest of the shed…..for me.
Amelia wants to show you how much she loves her new digs…I think she is showing off a bit…notice the slight pirouette?
I love pulling up this chair to watch my girls.
I really haven’t had the room to decorate yet. I got the rest of the entire shed insulated yesterday (in 85 degree weather!). And then believe it or not….I painted the insulation..white. It made it so much lighter in the Mansion, I know my girls will bring on the eggs now!!!
Here’s the other end the room…my side. I am thinking of painting the bench all white, as well. Any ideas for the top surface of the bench? I wonder if I would like a galvanized metal over it? Might be too slick.
My hope is to use this area to do some of my repurposing and ‘heavy duty’ crafts. Maybe a little grow light and plants near the window, next Spring. I purchased that old window (under the bench) for $4 at Habitat, to put in the back of the shed, for more light but now I am hoping this is enough light. Besides I have a fun idea for the window.
That contraption over by the left window is the chicken door, which will be mounted in the exterior wall so the chickens can get out to their run…..coming soon.
