We have an old chicken coop on our property. It used to belong to
the old Victorian home next door as did the lot that our house sits on.
The coop is pretty old, probably built during the depression.
It hasn't been used as a chicken coop for at least 60 years, maybe longer.
It's a nice little building, perfect for storing garden tools and lawn mowers
in the winter. But it's poor roof had seen better days.
So a couple of weeks ago the Mister and his friend Vaughn went to work.
First they stripped off what was left of the old roof and added
a new fascia board.
Seven layers of shingles, tin, old linoleum (from the 50's), and other
substances that were hard to identify were scraped off.
New steel roofing was purchased.
Now the roof is water tight and ready for winter.
The rest of the coop, however, needs a bit of work.
I love old outbuildings.
So worth the work.
