Cottage Coop De Ville

    I was absolutely fascinated by Lake Norman Coop de Ville and the Wichita Cabin coop so I set on a mission to build my own, by using their great photos as my only guide. It took me 2 full weeks of long nights and restless weekends to complete it.

    Some differences:

    • The cottage cream color (to match the house)
    • I liked the idea to be able to take it with us if we ever moved, so I used Lake Norman's split idea.
    • I'm not going all high-tech with the chicken door yet, so I went with Whichita Cabin's pull door system.

    Other than that, its basically the same coop. I couldn't be any happier with it!

    Excellent coop, both design and workmanship. The series of photos is great. I especially like the one of dad helping the children gently handle them, and then the nighttime one with the coop, lit up. Thanks for sharing!
