    This is my first time to have chickens and build a coop. It took much longer than expected but I'm pleased.

    I had some good help.

    The roof. I had no plans. I just started and problem solved along the way. (might have been a mistake, very heavy)

    Nest box. I put a divider to make two 12 x 12 x 12 boxes.

    Turned out to be very heavy after the roofing and siding.

    Clean out door under the nest box.
