Guest Post (kinda): Gypsy Chicken

Kface here. So, I bring to you, what I consider one of the most BAD ASS uses of the transfer site and re-purposing of materials I have ever seen. Our friend James-Part-Time Arrogantly Shabby model (seen here), and Transfer station Extraordinaire recently Completed a project for a Mobile Gypsy Chicken Coop... I'm gonna let his words do the 'splaining:

"Been working at Goldstream sports these past months and have been cleaning up the place throwing away a lot of stuff and it’s hard to see being a dumpster diver, I came across an old baby carriage and thought man I should make something out of that, then it came to me, MOBILE CHICKEN COOP! I move around so much it just made sense why not make a gypsy wagon that can hold chickens, Why not make it entirely out of items found at the transfer sight. Free chicken coop…yeah…I dig that. These photos are from start to finish my month long scavenging and building of my very own gypsy wagon chicken coop."
