    The chicken coop as art.

    The British have taken chickens arks as they call them, to an art form. But with the US dollar weak against the Euro, who can afford to pay $1,000.00 or more for a place to keep their chickens? The Catawba ConvertiCoop can be built for significantly less money, and still maintain the look of a piece of fine cabinetry built with relatively few woodworking tools.

    It's possible that you may have already seen one of those amazing European chicken arks and thought, "I wonder how I could build a portable chicken coop that looks that nice?" My improved $19.99 booklet will show you how.

    A plan so simple, even those inexperienced with woodworking projects can do it.

    Really... Take my wife for example. She home schools our three daughters, keeps a neat and tidy house, and ensures that everyone has clean clothes. She's a good cook and can follow a recipe to the letter. But she's no carpenter or cabinet maker. Neither am I for that matter. What she can do well is follow instructions. You don't have to own a "New Yankee Workshop" to build a Catawba ConvertiCoop that will stop pedestrians and passers-by in their tracks.

    Just be prepared to answer a lot of questions about your chickens and where you got your coop. People will be amazed that you built it yourself. And now it's even easier. Over the course of the past two years, people have built these coops and sent me emails like this one:

    But in addition to building these coops, they have sent me feedback on the plans with additions they made, building steps they switched, and overall suggestions to people like yourself on how to make building this DIY chicken coop even easier. In December 2009, I collected all the emails and incorporated their excellent ideas into the book. Along with new more detailed technical illustrations and hints on how to make your Catawba ConvertiCoop even better, the thickness of the book nearly doubled. However, the price remains the same!

    Imagine having these spunky little charismatic creatures in your backyard. Sometimes they look like little dinosaurs as they streak across the yard. And people love em. My house is right beside the city park and pool. Mothers and children come into our backyard all the time to see the garden, the rabbits, and especially the chickens. All the time I'm asked, "Where did you get your chicken coop? It's amazing." They're always surprised when I tell them I how easy it was to build it myself using regular tools and dimensional lumber from a home improvement warehouse.

    I've decided to make my Catawba ConvertiCoop DIY Chicken Coop Plans, 3D Google Sketchup file, and support materials available in a variety of formats for $19.99 (plus shipping if applicable).

    [*] eBook - This is a 100% digital version of my plan set. It comes as a ZIP file that you download onto your computer. Instant gratification! You can print the plans to your printer.
    [*] CD-ROM - Same as the eBook format, except on a CD-ROM. Good for people with dial-up service.
    [*] Print Looking for something a little more high-end for your bookshelf or shop? Get the print version of the Catawba ConvertiCoop plans! My plans are professionally printed on 50lb white opaque paper with full color covers printed on 10lb glossy cover stock with full bleeds.

    100% Satisfaction Guarantee

    If you are not satisfied with your plans, let me know and I'll refund your purchase price with no questions asked. Well, that's not entirely true. I'll ask you what I could do to make the packet better so that others don't have the same experience you did. And hey, even if you enjoy the booklet and the notoriety that comes from having a beautiful chicken coop, I'd STILL like to hear from you with suggestions. Send me an email to [email protected].

    How do you get the feeder and waterer in?

    Quote:Sure did! I had one of my coops in the chicken barn. The NC Ag Dept has asked me to put a little more interest in there, other than just chickens.

    Quote:The sides are not attached. They are doors that are all easily removable. I hang a feeder and watering fount on one end by hooks. It's a very simple arrangement, once you understand how it works.

    I would really like to try this. When you say few tools, could you be more specific? I am REALLY dumb about building stuff. Well, I never have, to be honest.
