Chicken Hipster Loft

    The Chicken Hipster Loft has a 4ft by 5ft by 4ft interior space, with a discarded vinyl replacement window, hung sideways, as a sliding glass doorway. The whole structure sits atop 3ft posts, and has a staircase leading underneath for your chickens' dustbathing pleasure. The underside is entirely fenced-in (including buried fencing in the ground), and opens up on one side for 20 feet of enclosed run-space. The whole structure occupies a small footprint for Urban Chicken Keepers, and is built entirely out of scrap materials found on the curbs of Binghamton, NY's residents on Garbage Day.


    The artwork on the side is inspired by Yuri Norstein's children's tale, Hare and Fox

    Cute coop. Be good to learn how you put all the re-purposed material together for this one.

    I saw the measurements but a few more pictures couldn't hurt.

    The windows do open up, and there's actually a gap where the roof meets the structure, and the piece of plywood above the window can be set more-or-less open than it is.
    Thanks folks. It sure brightens up our back yard.
