We’ve been working in the chicken coop and the potting shed simultaneously, since they are under the same roof. We finished up the wall that divides the two and finished laying the vinyl floor the other day. The vinyl floor is from Lowe’s…and was the most inexpensive way to have a durable, nice-looking floor. It ran us about 98 cents a square foot so the entire floor ran us about $80. (see bottom of this post for more floor info)
Brett built these shelves and the potting bench this week using reclaimed wood:
We’ve also been working on the outside. I’m almost finished painting the walls and Boo planted herb gardens in the window boxes yesterday:
We didn’t have washers to hang the boxes so I used old bottle caps that I’d collected:
I can’t wait to show you everything else we’ve done…but right now it’s a total wreck as I’m moving things in and out. We are starting the chicken run this week as well. Just piling on the fun projects. I told Brett the other day that I wanted to put a greenhouse on our list…he might just be on board since our entire living room is being used as one right now:
Just a funny little aside…my nephew posted on his Facebook page the other day:
So my aunt has started raising chickens and one of them has 600 more followers on Instagram than I do. Wat.
True story. Who knew one little chicken could have so much personality?
Style Selections 6″x36″ Antique Woodland Oak/Dark Brown
I’d cover my entire house in this stuff. It doesn’t even look like vinyl!

You are getting so much done. Anybody that would undertake what you have since moving to North Carolina, has to be so proud of the progress you two are making. Thanks for sharing.
A while back, my mother lived in a condo on the third (top) floor. She was doing some remodeling and wanted hardwood floors installed, but the condo association would allow it because of the noise they make for the folks living below her. So we opted for the vinyl “wood” instead. After it was installed, NO ONE believed that it wasn’t actual wood. And it was so quiet when you walked on it.
I love your garden posts, Ashley. You are inspiring me to get out and make a garden!!!
