    [FONT=georgia,palatino]With the same dimensioned non- treated wood make 2 equal roof frames to the dimensions of 6' 10" x 5' with equal spacing between rafters and 4 nailing spacers spaced at intervals so as to allow for easy attachment. The peak ends are cut to 41 degrees. Attach to wall framing with screws to allow 10" of eave overhang and equally spaced gable overhang. The peaks are secured with 1/2" truss pieces cut to the angle of the peak attached with screws. Now the gable ends of the coop can be fashioned the same way as the walls.[/FONT]
