My wife has a thing for animals! All animals! I came home from work one day and found 4 baby ducks living in a small cage in the garage. My first thought was ”%$&@!”.
So this became my next “project”!
First-they’ve got to get out of the garage and they really need to be protected from the night time predators. Thus became the plans for “the duck house”.
It’s got wheels so we can move it around the yard (and this is a definite requirement with ducks…there’s a reason they are called “foul”)
With all of my complaining about the ducks, it actually came out pretty nice. My wife painted the “front door” to the coop and I bought some of those cheap, cedar fence boards (the dog eared kind) from the Borg and resawed them into cedar shake shingles.
Well, the ducks seem to like it!
Now back to the shop for some real “important” woodworking!
