89. not goin nowhere. period.

if i aint free where i stand, nobody is free.

we gutted the mechanicals. the parts were all sold and are now in use.
we pulled out everything from the inside, lined the floor with 2 layers of 1/4' hardware cloth, and covered it with rolled rubber roofing that we burned down.
we covered the windows with hardware cloth, but they still go up and down fine, so climate control is one of its strong points.
we reinforced the few rusty spots, and plugged up holes, like the heat vents.
so far we have had one incursion of rodents, during the polar vortex. we found the hole, and corked it. end of rodents.

we put the seats back in, put baskets on one which they lay in. put more on the floor in the front.
we recycled a couple of old wooden ladders for roosts, putting them over the seats and in the back.

they are closed in safely at night, and i open a back door to let them out in the morning.

since the engine compartment is empty, we have a nice dry storage space for extra bedding, etc.

the tires still hold air, so it is dry and off the ground, so nothing can burrow in.

i really have never seen a safer, sounder coop.
