    Construction:
    The coop section is 4x8 and the total size with the pen/run is 8x12. The front is 8 foot high with the rear lowered to 7 1/2 feet. The front door will be used for easy egg collection and changing of food & water.The entire right side of the coop will be on hinges to make cleaning a little easier. I plan on using a droppings board under the roosts with an area under that to socialize or whatever chickens do in their spare time.

    Phase 2 of my coop construction.
    The roofing paper is on, the windows are in and the exterior has a first coat of paint.
    The windows are 31x19 Anderson Hoppers. I wanted something that can stay open if it rains.
    The windows are reversed to open/close them without having to go into the coop.

    The roof is shingled the fencing is up and second coat of paint is finished. Starting to look like a real coop......Finally!

    I really like the roost/dropping board arrangement. What are the dimensions of the interior of the coop? Thanks, Sue
