Designed & built by: Shawn A. James Sr.d.b.a. ; Jamesgang 5 Hurst, Texas First of all,,,,I do not have any chickens. . I am, well, rather creative. I believe I am a person who likes the chance to create & build unique items when given the opportunity. I have a client who knows of my abilities and requested that I research, design & build a chicken coop. It was overwhelming when I started my research. She also wants to incorporate a roof-top garden and plenty of planters. She loves the barn style coops with lots of off-set windows and country appearance. I created different sketches & dreamed up many different ideas. However, I have never raised chickens. ... finally, she drove me around to different places that are raising chickens. ..that changed my whole perspective! All previous ideas, designs & thoughts had to be reconsidered. .
