    We finished our 12x6 Coop a few weeks ago. Took about 4 weekends. I used designs and idea's from earlier posts so i figured I should post mine! I have a few things to complete, like a better watering system. But here it is..
    Building off an exisitng shed....

    Even have the teenager hamering instead of computer gaming!

    Some left over vinyl flooring from another project!

    Door to access the nesting boxes is water tight!

    Nesting boxes on the inside - walls all painted! I should have made the top steeper, they love to sit there even though I have a few 2x4s across now.

    Front of coop wall is old deck boards and on the inside is 1/2 plywood. I used roofing tar paper in-between to keep any moisture and drafts out. The right side is one big door for cleaning it out.

    Finished job! The little temp fence keeps them out of the front yard and driveway, for now.

    Thanks to all who already posted, built this off those designs!

    "how-to" info. Really nice looking coop/run - would have loved more details/dimensions.

    Well done! I like the vinyl floor. I'm going to use the pre-cut 4x8' sheets of plastix or whatever it's called. A piece of it worked great in the brooder. It made clean up a breeze. The most amazing feat, IMO, was getting your teenager off the computer!!!
