It took a while to save enough money to get the barn roof repaired, but it seemed to take even longer in our search to find someone who was experienced and confident enough to take on a 2 story roof repair project like this.

On a more fun note we took advantage of a super nice Saturday this past weekend to help Anna's brother Joey build this new mini chicken coop. His idea of using an old plastic cargo carrier for the roof worked out very nicely. You can't see it in the picture, but the main frame is two solid doors attached in an "L" shaped pattern.
