coming from the Applachian mts. i have seen in my life time many new families begin with the old chicken house out back, when I first seen the structure that was onced the homestead, i could not help but notice how underbuilt it was, however it last for quite sometime. I think you are right on course,# 1 there is so much Love/Happiness/& teamwork put into the structure that is surly the cement that will make this building to last our life time. Mark don't forget to take a sage smoking to bless the building before using. Hope you keep having nice weather to complete.
