Thank you for this great information, I am making some changes on how we are keeping our 48 meat chickens. This has been such an eye opener for me, really!

Also, I was reading in Psalms 65, and in verse 13: The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

I surely want our birds to be singing and shouting for joy! This verse really describes the time of year we are at in Wisconsin!

Our chickens say thank you so much! I am sure I will be back with an update, I would like to try out Paul's favorite way to keep chickens, we have a perfect spot(s).

Hi, we are a large family in SW WI. We are in the process of building a tree house, which is larger than some homes I have seen thru this forum. We watched the video, 'Measure Twice, Cut Once', which got us motivated, and was a real blessing! The tree house is 12' x 10', up on a triangle of 3 2'x10' beams, which are bolted to 3 trees. It's sloped, one side is 6' up, the other is about 14' from the ground.
I have been looking thru posts to try to find out building codes. We live in a house built before WI was a state, so possibly 175 years old. Made of stone, there was an addition made in about 1963ish. There is alot of great history on our farm.
We are not going to be building a new home anytime soon, but I am fascinated with the tiny house movement. But for a family of 9, a tiny house is out of the question. We would love to get out of debt, but dont know what the future holds for us. It is a constant prayer going up, and there is hope!
Is there anyone who can de-code the building code jargan? I have no idea what we can and cannot do on "our" property, (quotes because we have a mortgage).

Great to be here! Also looking at setting up a Little Free Library near us, and also a store on the farm. The store we are going to start hopefully when the tree house is done.
