    Surely you could adapt this to become a chicken coop!

    23 pages of Cute Little Shed plans (1 shed, 23 pages of info), from the American Plywood Association:
    http://www.apawood.org/pdfs/managed/APA_GabledGardenShed.pdf?CFID=17951084&CFTOKEN=76970093

    Includes: Materials list, Notes and Tips, Panel and Lumber cut layout, etc.

    You may have to "register" to see them, but that involves giving them your name and email address. You do have a "junk" email account for such purposes, eh? [​IMG]



    Edit: Oooh! There are more!

    8x12 shed: http://www.apawood.org/pdfs/managed/APA_GardenShed.pdf?CFID=17951084&CFTOKEN=76970093

    That's when you know you are too far gone with the disease morechickensitis. You can find ANYTHING and envision how you can make it into a coop! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I don't have ANY chickens... yet...

    But I did have to do some plywood research this afternoon at work, and stumbled onto these. I figured those who are looking for coop plans might benefit from these shed plans, particularly since they're so detailed.

    That would make an awesome chicken coop. How silly that they thought it could be anything else! Garden shed, hah!

    I do that too, Happy Chooks, see potential chicken coops everywhere. And I have a perfectly good one and can only have 4 chickens where I am, anyway.

    Joz if you are looking at 8X10 and 8X12 shed plans for chicken coops and you don't have any chickens yet, you better think about building a 16X24 coop cuz you are going to wind up with a whole MESS of chickens! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That's funny. I have already pretty much doubled the size of my coop, I am not even finished with it and am thinking I made it too small. Think Big! [​IMG]

    Here's how bad it has gotten with me: I am now considering giving up on the raised garden beds, because they take up space in the back yard that I could use for grow-out and/or auxiliary coops! Maybe I can salvage some of those boards......
