We are just putting the finishing touches on our 10 x 10 coup! Dave designed it so that there was a sheltered "egg collection" area for me to store feed, bedding, egg cartons, etc. It is covered in Hemlock on the exterior, the interior has reclaimed wood from a farm down the road. My husband is a contractor, so a lot of the materials were from homes that were replacing windows or doors. It has been relatively low cost - just lumber and stain. The roof has an egg inlay that he did for me! What a guy! We have 16 Golden Comets who started laying at only 14 weeks! We homeschool so this has been a great experience for all of us!
Almost finished with the Hemlock - notice the egg inlay in the roof
entrance - egg station is enclosed - for protection against the elements!
foundation - we actually used old telephone pole to sink into the ground with cement to build our foundation
First wall up with our son!

coup and the overhand is where the "egg station" will be
