Alaska Coop For Wet And Cold Weather

    Here is our coop we put together with mostly scavenged and recycled materials. We live in a very wet climate and moderate cold in the winter so we made a run partially under the coop for the girls to get out of the rain. We dug deep around the foundation to put in brick and try to keep the digging predators out. Recently added an electric fence after a visit from Mr. Bear. Coop is insulated with rigid foam. Access doors on right for nesting boxes and food/water. Access doors on left for clean out so we could pull the wheelbarrow under to catch the used material. Custom glass window to let the girls have flowers year round.

    I like the shingle siding and window but it would be helpful to others to include more details on how it was built.

    "Great Coop - Very Few Details - No How-to."

    This is a really great-looking coop. The title is a real eye-catcher, - Wet and Cold Weather - but the details are all in one photograph. The picture is wonderful ... but doesn't show anything about the "Wet and Cold Weather" adaptations. I would LOVE to see this article fleshed out! The coop has a unique look (LOVE the Northwest feel of the wood and brick) and it would be great to see more on how it was designed and built. ... Please?

    Dimensions would be great to have. It's cute but what about pics inside? We all would love to see some.
