    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...

    Really nice coop and good pics showing the process. Funny how hardly anyone keeps plans if we ever even draw them up.

    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.

    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.

    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!
