    With a base of 10 x 10 would consider it a Smaill coop... And the Arc is Cattle fencing ... Cattle fencing and sides covered with chicken wire and a door to walk in the front and the nesting boxes have lift up covers ...

    When I charged my friend with coming up with a design for my coop, My two criteria were:
    1. I needed to be able to walk in and clean it standing straight up
    2. I wanted to be able to get the eggs from the boxes with out going inside the coop ...

    With those two things and the fact that I wanted to keep the cost down, many other great pluses came from this coop ...
    1. It is a mobile coop ... I was able to move it by myself with a little of Egyptian ingenuity
    2. It only cost a total of $225 in materials
    3. If for some reason I am done with chickens it would easily be converted to a green house with some plastic sheeting ...

    I'm planning to make a hoop coop too! Were you involved in the building process? I have a friend who thinks I would need something to bend the cattle panels over to make a round hoop shape.... Every DIY blog about cattle panel hoop coops that' I've read does not mention anything about the difficulty of bending the fencing.... Did you guys have any trouble getting the panel to bend/flex into a hoop shape? Thanks!

    Not too bad only it is a little on the small side and no protection in the winter time.
