    This is the coop my husband and his father built for the girls. It was designed to match the style of our house.

    The body of the house is 3' by 4', with 3 nesting boxes in the back. The nesting box roof lifts up for easy access to the eggs. There is a sliding drawer on the bottom that makes cleaning a little bit easier.

    The coop is just big enough for our 4 chickens. If I were to build another coop, I'd make it bigger. I also wouldn't recommend stuccoing the coop. It looks great, but is very heavy.

    Be good to see more how to pics. Is there any provision for cooling? I believe that this coop could become a death trap in the Arizona summer heat.

    Ventilation isn't an issue. We've got a fan in the attic.

    Maybe there's window on the other side? I like the design though.

    It's very cute, but I'd be very concerned about the lack of ventilation.
