It is in fact 8x8 feet. I will only have 8 hens but the more room the better, plus I really wanted something I could walk into and clean easily. We are doing a lean to style roof, it will be peaked at 7 feet in the front, and be about 6 feet in the back where the lowest point is. We are using 2z4's to raise the front of the roof, and the sides between the top of the wall and the roof will be open for venelation. I am putting hardware cloth up in the vent area's to make sure no critters get it. Pictures will be posted as we go. We are headed to Home Depot tomorrow evening, and will be starting bright and early on Wednesday.
Thank you! My friend should give some thought into starting his own coop building buisness. The floor went fast, and is built very sturdy.
