The arbors leading up to the front door almost give this little house a storybook entrance. The cobblestone walkway plays into that old-world feel I was going for and makes this place feel like it’s always been here. I’m so excited for all of the beautiful vines and fruit trees that will grow on and between these over the years.
Inside this week’s episode of Fixer Upper where Chip and Joanna build and design a new garden shed, garden and chicken coop for their own farm? I think it’s my all-time favorite show that they’ve ever done. The inspiration for the she shed is the huge diamond-paned window that she’s been storing in her massive warehouse filled with amazing flea market finds.
Episode 12 - My Garden
There are so many reasons to have a chicken coop on a farm but for this garden especially, the chickens keep the bugs that like to eat veggies away, and, of course, they produce eggs. Adding in the chicken run around the garden helped to not only keep my veggies safe, it has also become a fun project for the girls to help me with. For details on how to build this chicken coop, check out the spring issue of the Magnolia Journal!
