    I had a swing set in the backyard that I used to built the base and I used the roof from it too. I got the shingles for free from extra ones I had. I used the railings of the swing set/ play set to build the run. The only wood i had to buy is the wood that the walls are made out of.

    This is the earliest picture I took of the coop.

    In the mean time, chicks are getting bigger.

    I put the chicks in the run on a warm day so they can get used to it. i started putting the wire on too. I painted it and added a ramp, they don't use it now but it's there anyways haha.

    I still have a little finishing touches but this is where they are living right now.

    Three nesting boxes and a window to get the eggs when they start to lay.

    Your coop looks nice. I like the black and red together. I tried to go to the link so I could see the coop plans you used, but all I got was "paged not found" page has been moved.

    If I could see the plans I would have rated this higher.
    It doesn't look like you are able to walk into the run, even though it has a tall part, unless there is a door on the other side.
    Now that you have been using it, is there anything you would change about it?

    I like the big double door opening in the coop! I bet that makes cleaning put the coop very easy!

    This is a pretty good article considering that you don't have any build pictures of the coop. I would love to see some measurements and a little more detail on how it was built. Overall though, good job!
