    I used the floor platform as a work table to frame up all the walls.
    It made an easy work table and by using small blocks of 2x4 nailed into floor, used as "blocks" it assured everything was square

    Roof shingled, I normally would have sheathed the exterior walls before roofing...but big winter storm inbound. Freebie Arct Shingles!

    Window and door cutouts. The coop faces the south. the opening at the tops of the east and west walls (ends) will be seasonable panels, the inside will have hardware cloth attached for summer ventilation, during the cold months I can screw on siding panels that will match the outside of the coop to eliminate excess ventillation and add warmth

    It would have been nice to see dimensions included. The wall framing throws me with the extra horizontal pieces. I bet it is solid though.
