So we got the chickshaw finished over the past few days. It is currently sitting in our barn while the sealer dries where we applied it yesterday. I am hopeful that we can get the electric poultry fence put up and the chickshaw in the garden today!
We followed Justin Rhodes’ plans to the letter and this is how it turned out. I’m going to give a rundown on how well we did.
First thing we had to do is make all of the cuts according to the cut list. We did find a couple cuts were missing once we started through the actual instructions. We ended up needing another 2×4 for 2 additional 2x2s that were missing but all in all it was spot on. We made the cuts and labeled each board as we went so we would know which board went where when we came to it in the instructions.
Next up…assembly! My favorite part! It is like life size Legos! 🙂
A big thanks to my Dad for letting us take up his garage space to work on it too! 🙂 We worked on it 3 evenings total and I felt like that was making pretty good time for building it for the first time as well as having two kiddos roaming around too.
Next up, we have to put up the electric poultry fence and get the ladies out there. More on that soon!!!
Have you made Justin’s chickshaw? If so, I would love to see your pictures!
