    Hey everyone! Well, I am very happy to say that I personally, and with the help of my sweet fiance, was able to complete 3 walls of the hutch. Not too large though. It is going to be 48"front and back and 38" sides. 2 opening doors in the rear to retrieve eggs from 6 laying hens. I am looking forward to completing it on tomorrow. I will post photos of all of my project including my birds when I get them.

    I'm dying to start mine! I am here now looking to see if I can find a plan vs buy one on ebay. Good luck!

    I know how you feel, we just started our new coop today and hope to mostly finish up tomorrow. We completed two wall six and a half feet tall and six and a half feet wide. Still not positive but I may raise it off the ground. Either way I wish you good luck. I know we bought a framing nailer and I am very impressed with its performance so far.
