Tasha & Nathan in the Kootenay/Okanagan Mountains of British Columbia have created  a modern day homestead.  They have a menagerie of well loved and well cared for animals.  Their “just-about-finished” cedar chicken coop is a sturdy post and beam structure with unique & interesting cordwood log ends.  Tasha Hall chicken coopThe many shelves that will act as roosts.
