There are two different roofing setups as I'm aware of. The first is a center beam in the top of the roof where the roof beams slant from both sides of the bean onto the top of the structure: The second is where each pair of slanted beams aren't connected, but have additional beams keeping both beams together: Now, typically both are used in major construction projects, but due to the size of chicken coops (4x4ft max for what I'm planning) you use one or the other. But when it comes to chicken coops, what is the best one? Or at least, what did you use for you're design? I'm going to put up a poll so you don't have to reply to help me out (replies are helpful, but telling me what you prefer via poll can still help).
