Wichita Cabin Coop

    We built this based on the Wichita Cabin plans - the base is about 5 x 10. I prepainted all the wood and just touched up whatever needed it after it was put together. We used polycarbonate roof panels without anything underneath because we don't have a lot of wind here and it's very temperate all year long. I used boot trays as poop boards, but if I do this again, I'd use shallow plastic bins (more rigid and easier to remove to clean).

    Great job!

    May I ask where the original 'Wichita Cabin' plans come from?
    I have seen others mention this style coop but I have no idea where it comes from.
