Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Way Over the Top

Friday, December 06, 2013

Hi, all-

My apologies for having been offline for the last 2 weeks, but I've got some crazy stories to catch everyone up on.  Alas, I won't have time until this weekend when things finally quiet down a bit.  In the meantime, I just HAVE to post something that J. found on the Neiman-Marcus website.  We went a little over the top in building our chicken coop, but this so-called Beau Coop is WAYYYYY over the top. Don'tcha think?

I wonder how many people will be whipping out the credit card for this baby at $100,000?

Now, granted, it includes a consultation, grounds survey and two additional onsite visits from an "expert".  And it does have a chandelier (every well-heeled chook should have one of those, right?)  But I'm pretty sure my hens are quite happy and my raised garden beds have done quite well for well under that budget. Her coop doesn't even have a trellis over the door or a fancy mural on the wall like ours!

Tell you what....if you're reading this and you've got the money to burn on this thing, give me a ring.  I'm willing to help build you a similar chicken palace and FOUR raised beds for the paltry sum of $75.000.  It's a bargain!
