Now that the weather is getting better, it’s time to start getting out and start building some backyard projects.
If you like to build using plans or if you have never built check out this website for the easiest to follow plans online http://www.diygardenplans.net/
Around this time of the year we all want to the some spring cleaning. Throughout the winter we have been gathering stuff we need as well as stuff we do not really need. If you are like me you will start moving everything from the house into the garage. This brings up a great project for this spring, a shed. Having a shed will allow you to clean up your house and garage, and park the car back in the garage again. The website mentioned above has great instructions and ideas for sheds. The shed range in size from big ones that are perfect for storage to smaller ones good for garden equipment.
I f you do not already have a pergola know is the perfect time to build it and have it ready for those outdoor barbeques. A good size pergola will allow lots of outdoor chairs and tables (that you can also build). The pergola can be built on top of a wooden deck or concrete slab. If you have neither a wood deck can be built in a couple of days.
One project that is going to be a must for me this year is a chicken coop. A small chicken coop to accommodate 3-4 chickens should provide me with plenty of fresh eggs. Building a hen house is kind of like building a small shed. But keep in mind when building to add a vent, a large door to make cleaning easy, a small door with a ramp so the chickens can come in and out, and a nest box that allows checking for eggs easy.
One of my favorite websites, it’s my favorite because the plans are very detailed, will be adding plans for chicken coops. you can stay updated on the latest project by following them here https://www.facebook.com/DIYGardenPlans
