Early Bird

2 hours before breakfast, 4am, and the jet-lag's got ahold of me... can't sleep.  Whatever time we leave the ALARM center in Kigali and get to the actual orphanage, we have to get materials today.  This is the only thing on my mind. With 2x4s and cement blocks, we can begin making the 6 frames that form the chicken coop structure.  We get those tacked together and set on blocks so they're off the ground, preventing rot, and then we brace it against itself, add in floorboards, wallboards and roofboards.  The square of the yard will mean digging out post holes every 7 or 8 feet to place 4x4 posts where we'll attach the chicken wire wrap.

I keep doing it in my head but I want nails in boards!
