    I took a lot of pictures when I built this coop, but never shared them with anyone. Here they are!

    This one might be confising... This is the nesting box door. I insulated it with 2 inch foam.

    I put skids on it. This step was one of the first ones, but I forgot to take a picture.

    The finished product! 100% insulated with an opening window, door, egg hatch, and it has electricity. It is now painted light brown and has a black seal under the four egg-hatch hinges.

    The inside... the roost is up higher.

    I forgot to mention, It has pretty much everything a normal house has except for Tyvec®. Not including heating and plumbing, of course. :lau
