A Frame Chicken Coop

Coop Design

Hi there:
 
I'm assuming that what I have is what you're looking for...I didn't have any designs to go by, but while trying to find something that was visually pleasing, I found a children's playhouse that looked nice...I downsized the floor area, and put in an enclosed run underneath to utilized the small area I wanted to devote to the coop...I can give you more details, but want to make sure that this is the stuff you're looking for...Molly and her chicks Penelope and Priscilla are my first hens, and just yesterday, I got my first egg from Molly...

Nice coop how long did it take you to build it and where did u get the idea from. i am looking at making a new one soon as my coop has not been treated.
What an adorable coop! Wood floors and tile walls, how cool!
this is so cute. my very first coop is functional, but the next one is going to be cute!
It is sooo cute. I like the vinly on the walls.
Looks like a little dollhouse! Very cute!
Super Cute! I wish we had taken pictures from start to finish. We plan to move this year, and I hope to get more chickens, so hopefully a new coop :) I've always loved the coops that look like houses. Great job, and BEAUTIFUL garden!! Way to go!
This is great Just what I'm looking for love the walls and front porch. Great job!!!!

That is so cute! I have been searching for ideas on here as we want a functional coop that's also attractive and I love this idea. The wood floors and vinyl on the walls are a great idea.
i could LIVE in there!! (if it was big enough..lol)
Adorable! We just got 4 pullets and have converted my daughter's old playhouse into a chicken coop and we have also used tile but on the floor to make it easier to when we have to clean it. I will have to post a picture one of these days, the exterior looks similar.
What an adorable coop! I would love something so cute.
how much did it cost you ?
To cute! Just one question, How do you access your nesting boxes?
Your coop is beautiful!
