    This is the newly constructed coop at Bauernhof Siebeneck. It was built almost entirely with recycled or scrap lumber. The window is from the early 20th century while the front door was salvaged from a demolished house from 1830. It is modeled after an unusual historic outhouse on the adjacent property which was the pottery in the 1840's. The coop's features include a window for sunlight and viewing into the nest boxes for snakes (the Moniteau Creek is behind the house and the Missouri River is two blocks away; hence, snake city) and eggs. Opposite the window, one finds direct access to nests for easy egg collection. The inside floor is covered with scrap shower board and makes for super-easy cleaning. The house can be lit at night with energy-saving compact florescent lighting and is equipped with an outlet. [​IMG]
