    The interior is beautiful! It looks well constructed. I wish there were more pics with details and a write up.

    Nice layout inside; I like the bucket hanger. Good pics of outside finished but not so much of process?

    This is a nice and roomy coop. I would love to see the 0lans and how it was built in the article, I'm sure a lot of others would enjoy to see too. Thanks for sharing.

    Ex batt chicks yes it's finished, we added 2 pvc pipes in the coop for the feed, really saves on them wasting food, ventilation is in the roof, one on each side under roof, yes linoleum floor it is, Bought at Lowes clearance 14.00 for the roll, I also put linoleum on the board under the roost bar, easier to clean, just use a scraper, put in bucket to throw out, wash the board really easy to clean,, I use pine shavings for the floor, works well and no stink even when the weather is hot, I just keep turning it over.We live in Ct and we have cold winters but talking to people that raise chickens said it fine this way with no insulation,,, thank you

    Love that price! Gonna watch for cheap windows and shingles at the local auction. Flooring, too. Thanks for showing us. ;/)

    Have you finished this coop and what does it look like since you added these photos? I think it looks fabulous and your inside ideas are great (e.g. the tubs in the laying stations) and so forth. It looks beautiful and solid. What about ventilation? How do you account for ventilation in, for example, the Winter when you might not open the window. Is that linoleum on the floor? Will you use sand or straw to put on the floor? Will you insulate it or do you not need to where you live? No matter, great job, it really look great!!
