Does anyone have a plan similar to this coop? I'm hoping this isn't too complex.

Mine is like that. The garden coop. I actually bought the plans from the website and, for me, it was totally worth buying plans. Very helpful! I made a modification or two on the fly including adding a pop out nest box made from an old kitchen cabinet on the end where the window is in your picture. Mostly though, I stuck with the instruction.

I think that I am going to change out the roof panels for plywood though, since I lost one of the shade trees from my neighbors yard when it fell over in a storm one night recently. I feel like it gets too much morning sun now. (I'm in texas and it gets hot early!)

Definitely not too complex if you have a few tools. I'm a 50 year old female and I built it completely single handedly. Of course it looks a little different now since I added a large run and put my babies out in it, lol. They are 10 weeks now. Been out there for about 4 weeks full time.

Those are pretty nice plans...the guy who sells them is pretty good with feedback too, or was.

Lots of examples on the website.

I believe the plans are easily enlarged, which is a good idea IMO, because it is  rather small.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

Yes! It is kind of small, as I am rapidly finding out, lol. That darn chicken math.
