The Christmas Condo Coop
My wife has wanted to raise a few laying chickens for a while now so I'm building her a coop.
Since it's a Christmas present for my wife and my cousin says that the chickens have a condo.
It's the "Christmas Condo Coop".
Find a large scrap pile to pick thru for the good stuff.
Get the old flat-bed boat trailer out of the shed and start framing the walls.
Finish framing the wall and the roof.
More walls and the roof put on.
Insulate floor, roof, walls, and put tin on roof.
Put the window (plexiglass) in and the last wall on with the pop door cutout.
Make a video of your progress and show off to all your Facebook friends.
Redo the back pop door so it's on a sliding track and not hinged.
Build nestboxes and roosts.
Put the people door on.
And the most important step in building a chicken coop....

Things I need to do yet are:
So there's not much left to do .
- Build the door.
- Add more ventilation (mainly in the door).
- Put linolium tile on floor.
- Add trim
- Extend the run out the front.
- Build covered run out the front.
- Move the whole coop out to where my wife wants it.
- Build run out the back.
More to come.
Thanks for looking.
