|Fortunately, we've collected a bunch of pallets for a project just like this. Here we start with one like this, but if we were luckier, we could have found one with the board closer together.|
|We cut the runners to the right length and used more pallet boards to make corners. We made the boards 24" long so that the height from floor to the top would be about 20".|
|Fit test #1: Pass! Plus there's enough room for the cooler alongside! With the seat down in the Saturn, the front is higher than the back, so we added a hunk of 4x4" to level it.|
|To keep it dark (which calms the chickens), we could make a wooden top with a hinge, but it also works fine to just use a blanket.|
