Hello everyone I thought I'd share my coop's project progress. Here is the spot I picked to build the coop on, it's heavily shaded 24/7 in the summer & that should help keep the chickens cool in the heat, I marked out the area with landscaping timbers to get a general idea. First I framed out the coop's floor. Then I framed out the under the coop run, I left gaps on front & back corners so I can build gates. Next I laid the coop floor & started framing in the front of the coop. Then I framed in the back of the coop & started framing in the roof. A couple of photos of me & my helper to give everyone a general idea of the scale of the coop. Then I finished framing in the roof, cut out & built the under the coop run's ramp & added some cross beam supports, with the two cross beam supports in the middle double as roosts. I still need to work out a better rope/pully system to raise & lower the under the coop run's ramp but I needed to test the fit of the ramp real quick so sloppily I tossed a piece of rope over the rafter for now. Anyway I'll continue to update as I go, I'd appreciate any & all feed back or advice that you experienced coop builders are willing to give & I am happy to answer any & all questions that any other newbies like myself might have about my coop's construction. -Richard.
