    I know several of you have that old camper top from either upgrading or it won't fit the truck you have now, or it was such a good deal, you just had to buy it.

    Think chicken coop.

    Went out to the boss's place yesterday and finally got to see his chicken coop he's been braggin' on. A camper top, put to good use.

    The GMC Sonoma gave up the ghost and I wasn't about to put another $3000 into rebuilding it a second time, so got an F150. My oldest boy moved home with his two dogs, that makes 4. One of his tears everything up in the garage, so I set the camper top up as a dog house. Used landscape timbers to raise it some and keep it from digging in to the dirt and put down some pieces of treated plywood I had around for flooring. Works great.

    Your pictures, however, give me some new ideas. Build a taller tower and use it for a deer stand roof, build a really small cabin, find an old boat and make a cuddy cabin, and on.

    See, I just knew there were a bunch out there that can't bear to part with them shells.

    My boss calls himself a high tech redneck, because his garage is bigger than his house.

    The Corvette is just inside the first open door, and a 91 full dress electraglide is just inside the last closed door.
