Overview Of Construction
As a busy new homeowner with a full time day job, young family, and with
no real construction experience,
a project such as this will take me a lot longer than one might expect.
However, where possible, I will include a timetable of my work just to show
a real example of the time investment involved.

Any big project is almost always made easier and more managable by breaking
it up into several smaller subprojects.
Listed below are the subprojects that make up the whole of my project.
Questions, comments, and suggestions are most welcome. You may email
me at firstname.lastname@example.org or place
online on the discussion board.
- The system beneath the loft which will secure it into place and
keep it from shifting or sinking into the ground, or simply falling
- The part of the loft which will be built upon and walked upon.
Birds aren't very heavy, but people are, so this structure should be as
sturdy as any typical floor structure.
- Walls enclose the loft keeping out undesirable things such as
rain, snow, excessive sun, cold, vermin, cats, dogs, etc, while
keeping in desirable things, such as your birds. The walls
will also bear the weight of the roof, and will be used to anchor many
of the lofts fixtures.
- A roof is similar to a wall, except for the fact that it's over your
head. It's all a matter of perspective.
- Fixtures are what transforms the completed structure from an ordinary
outdoor shed into a specialized racing loft.
