    Exterior siding

    The gable ends are sheathed first with 1/2" ply. The sides , front and back with manufactured imitation barn-wood siding. Hardware cloth is stapled to the front window openings before sheathing! Notice the openings left unsheathed for the later addition of the ramp doors. Then the spaces between the roof and walls are covered with 1/4 " ply( the white pieces along the roofs edge). notching out for the roof nailing spacers. Ventillation holes or hard ware cloth can replace this in warm climates

    "Great Coop. Piecemeal Articles Hard to Follow"

    This is a single photograph and a few lines of instruction for a coop build. It continues through many more stages, each listed as a separate article. Each step is very good but really hard to use without the context of the other pieces. In order to get good instructions for the full build, or to complete a current phase, the reader has to search for all of the other pieces. Finding them all one step at a time, then putting them in proper sequence, is very tedious and confusing. The details and pictures are good. Together, they would be excellent!
    This particular article has an expired picture, so it is only text. Good text, but only text and only a little piece of the total build.
