Day 1 involved LOTS of digging. Our hands are still raw from all the ground work. It started as a raised bed for herbs and now is an empty frame. I'll say a good days work! To save money on the nesting boxes we headed to Habitat Restore and used old cabinets. What should have cost us $50 only cost $15.
All I remember from Day 2 was lots of pricked fingers. Who knew chicken wire was such a pain? The important thing is that the wire is installed and the door is functioning! It actually looks like a place chickens would like to live. We also have created a little path to make it easier to get to the bees (and left space for a second hive...).
