    My daughter found a old shed and told me this would work for your chicken house.
    She knew I had been talking about chickens for a few years.

    After we got it home and off the trailer we put in piers to set it on (the area was ready a year ago).
    Then we set it with a lift on to the piers.

    The house is set in it final resting place...now the work begins.
    My hubby did it all...set it, built the stairs, then door, roosting boxes, and their poop deck,
    then he built the run its 6' x 16' with metal roofing. The side windows on the house tilt out for ventilation.
    We installed a automatic pop door..dusk to dawn setting it is working out well.

    , [​IMG] I painted it, made the sign and planted etc.
    Our chickens have moved in April 10, 2015

    Enlarged view of the "coop" shows you added a LOT of little details,, liked the entry posts, garden and Rooster on the handrail,, A person looking at the coop said " Looks better than most folks houses,, "

    Absolutely adorable! It reminds me of the little house my father built for me as a child. Excellent find and excellent job converting and expanding it! Wanna trade?

    My neighbors just got a chicken that looks like this and they don't know the breed. Any ideas? chix03.jpg
