Installing the Coop Flooring

Here Farmer Rick is installing the sheet vinyl flooring.

It's going down with a flooring glue and a trowel with grooves. The grooves are important to help the glue spread once the vinyl flooring is pressed down onto the plywood subflooring.

After drying 24 hours, the trimming begins.

Ta da! Now it just needs mopping to get the tree pollen off. Of course with the lovely speckled pattern you'd never know it was there if I didn't tell you.

FR pointed out the shape kind of looks like a grand piano. FR is an amazing pianist--no wonder he liked working on it! Next up will be the walls...stay tuned!

well, this was a smart thing, to lay the vinyl BEFORE the walls are put up. Made it much easier I bet. And not likely you would need to ever change it I suppose. Those are lucky birds to be living with you.

I wonder what other amenities you have planned for them?

It DOES look like a piano. Saw an similarly shaped desk today and they had a matching curved support going up the side. Maybe your roof supports could curve as well.
