    This is the first time I've built a coop, and I'm planning on getting around 6 chickens to put in it in the spring. I started designing this on an engineering software and started building it 2 weeks ago. It's coming along![​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! The roof will probably extend over about 2 inches on each side and then it will probably be shingled. Feel free to toss out more advice, I appreciate it!:) this is the inside view[​IMG]

    Make sure you don't build it so large you cant get it out of the garage. LOL

    How do you plan on moving it to its final location? It looks heavy.

    Haha luckily it's short enough that it will fit under the garage door but it is going to be very heavy. It's probably gonna be a few hundred pounds when it's done [​IMG] but I plan on having 3 other guys help me carry it about a hundred yards to the back yard. It'll be a hard, but manageable:)
