We built a chicken door

Charlie and I have been busy winterizing the new coop for the chickens and we started with the coop door. The artwork is courtesy of Charlie. His little Banksy for the ladies.

We whacked on nails and screws and pieced together a bunch of scrap wood to build a sliding pocket for the door to keep the cold drafts out.

The highlight is the stick which is exposed on the outside of the coop so Charlie can open and close the door without having to go inside the coop.

By the way, that stick is a piece of molding from the original kitchen when we bought the house.
