Taming the Pool & Chickens: Year 2

overgrown and green. No wait, it’s a black-bottom pool that was over run with frogs and salamanders, along with wind-blown pollen and debris that caused rampant algae growth.

We realized that nowhere on the property was going to escape the midday howling winds that whipped through from the west. So built the pool house to offer a wind break and our perimeter closest to the house started to take shape.

Unfortunately, our free roaming chickens decided the pool was a great area too and so a temporary barn/chicken house was designed. We spent the rest of 2013 building a 10’x 20′ temporary barn out of a pole carport. And since there was more than enough room, we added two goats to the now developing farm.
