    very nice construction .. I wish I had thought of wood screws before I did, it really makes a difference.

    Just wanted to let you know, I completely understand your situation. We received our 2 day old chicks the end of May, and are in the same boat. My husband has been working day and night on the coop since the end of May. It is so detailed, so much trim..... We are just about to put the main door on and a few other small touches, and the chicks can finally leave their 7' box. Your coop is beautiful. You did a wonderful job.
    I too researched on this site and used the same coop as a starting point. Great Job.

    OK.... that makes since, I couldn't figure out why you would line the interior with another layer of high end finish. I plan on lining my coop with commercial fiberglass board, you see it in industrial bathroom settings. I want to be able to easily take a preasure washer to the interior a couple times a year.
    Thanks again.

    RichterPA - Ok, now I know what you meant. The answer is NO. The Tongue & Groove pattern board it came with two different pattern on both side. You can choose to display whatever that fix you taste for on the outside. The pattern on the inside of the coop is about 3" space instead of 6" space pattern. Here is the Tongue & Groove Knotty Whitewood Pattern Board that I purchased from home depot:

    Sir.... I wanted to personally thank you for making the effort to type up that list! What a huge help that is. You asked for clarity on of my questions. I inquired if you lined the box with a different material. I know you skined the coop with 1x6, but the interior finish is not 1x6. Did you do that for a funtional reason or just to make it visually pleasing?
