    Hi, regarding the barn door headboard where did you find the lantern hooks? Trying to find smaller swivel hooks like those but so far no luck. Thanks

    Love your blog! It gets me into all kinds of …um….yeah, I’ll say it – trouble! But its good trouble, if there is such a thing! My question has to do with pallet construction. When building a structure with pallets, how do you attach the pallets vertically, say 2 or 3 pallets high and how do you attach them horizontally? I assume the main wooden members of the pallet are vertical?

    Hi, I was trying to get information on your old coop and how you built it but the picture is not a live link. It says “This page is not available.” Wondered if it was somewhere else or if you took it off?

      Hi Kim – sorry about the page – It should be good to go now – somehow it had a missing link. It is one of our first posts ever – so it has some info on the coop – but not as much detail as our others. If you have any other questions once you read it – you can just email me and I will be glad to to help in any way i can. Thanks and so glad you enjoy the blog! Jim
