My boyfriend did a BEAUTIFUL job building a coop for our five (soon to be eight) hens. It is a modified purina coop, we made it 4x8' to accommodate more hens. We are not quite done, need more hardware for the nestbox closure (now we are weighing it down with a brick). The purina plans are slightly wrong in some of their measurements, please be sure to check them as you build to make sure you don't waste lumber.
We were helped a lot in the beginning by Sam and Domino's follow-along here:https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...p-with-full-instructions-and-pictures-stage-1 It wasn't finished, but it was still a great instructional help in the beginning and we're grateful for the guidance.
The run is not pictured, but there is a door in the back of the coop that opens into a open air run.
