    Man this has been way more work than I thought it'd be! I told my wife I'd have it done in a weekend and that was three weeks ago. coop.jpg

    Looks great. Did you follow plans or design it yourself?

    I saw a picture of something kind of close to this in Pinterest, but the plans looked way too complicated so I just winged it. It's worked out for the most part I guess. It's been loads of fun building it.

    It is 8' long and about 6' tall coop + run. The coop is approximately 4' x 4' x 4' give or take a few inches. I wish I would have made it 10 or 12' long but maybe I'll add on next year.

    Yes I know what you mean. I built my coop and run in March and already wish I had made it bigger.
