Wayward Hippie

I wanted to be a hippie when I grew up...

Stump end table project.

Small batch fermented pickle experiment.  

Pack fresh pickles to pack into a quart jar (ends and stems cut) with a clean oak or grape leaf (keeps them crisp), large fresh dill sprig, three smashed cloves of garlic. Cover with brine made with 2 Tbsp unrefined salt dissolved into 3 cups of filtered water. Loosely cover and store in a cool dark place for 1-2 weeks. 

We shall see

Chicken coop details.

These are butterfly keys done right. Subtle, elegant, placed where they need to be, sized beautifully, and not taking the focus away from the grain surrounding them.

Chicken coop build. Studs for the walls are reclaimed 2x4 pine ripped in half (using full 2x4s is overbuilding and wastes space). The walls were built on the ground inside out…interior plywood was glued and nailed before assembling onto the floor (it’s easier to work outside the coop once the walls are up). Exterior Wall cavities were caulked and filled with 3/4” rigid foam board insulation before siding was applied.

Chicken coop build - insulating (and hiding) the water supply for inside the coop. Note: I’m building on the cheap and using old/leftover PVC parts. PEX pipe is better if you can afford it.

Layout, square, and level the 4’X10’ chicken coop.
