    The side with the 3 windows is the chicken coop side. The roof over the chicken coop will be a living roof I will complete in a few weeks. The overall size of the building is 12 x16 and the run is the same size. We used cedar on the outside because that was most available for us. Getting ready to install the automatic chicken door and finish the inside so I can get those chickens in!

    Not much detail to go on if one tries to build this. Even following the provided link does not get more info.

    This is a beautiful design! How high is the run area? I am going to put another one in but don't want to go as high as my walk-in one, but I still want to be able to clean it out periodically. Love the living roof. I want to put that on top of my lower run that I am building so I can harvest the veggies. So, I am hoping your run is about waist high?

    I'm going to do something different with the white door--just don't know just yet. You can follow the progress on my blog
