    A friend of mine built a coop all by herself. You can do it. It can be economically constructed of recycled wood and it can have whatever view you want. Here's an inspirational article I wrote about it on my Chicken-Women blog. http://chicken-women.blogspot.com/

    I did not build the coop in my backyard but partnered with someone to help me do it. It is fun (and somewhat challenging) to build your own coop but the rewards are HUGE. I highly recommend it!

    Agreed! We did the proverbial getting the chickens before the coop. It became almost urgent for us to build the coop. But, we love what we built and it's fun because it's our creation. I read somewhere that the more pieced together the coop is the more loved it is. Well, ours is certainly pieced together and we love it!
