We picked these up from some friends of ours on the East Side of Austin. They used to be food-grade storage barrels, but now we’re doing the rain dance! We’re probably going to paint them, but before that, we’re planning to drill some holes and add a spigot for irrigation. Stay tuned.
We found a screen door at Austin’s Restore to close in our side yard where we keep the chickens. It’s a little wonky, but better than the piece of plywood we were using before.
$10 and functioning. Win.
We’ll probably cut the jagged edges off the top and frame with more
metal. I think I’ll miss the jaggedness though. Let us know if you’re interested in some of the details. We’re working with a really good designer on the East side of Austin.
