    Okay...so here are some of the progression photos of my coop. It's still not done--so I'll have to keep adding to this page as I go...

    November 2005, the future spot of the coop:

    Coop spring 2007--it went one year without a window but I can't find pics on this computer...

    The coop was previously 8'x8' and split down the middle inside & out. One side housed my Brahmas, the other my Muscovies.

    Got the new roof on both sides, but still needs to be trimmed in this picture:

    New window in:

    Overhang for ventilation--can be closed up when needed (located on South side of the building)
    backside--old meets new

    One of the two vents on the East & West wall. Larger than they look and they can be closed, if needed:

    A shot of the outside from August. I've since gotten the trim painted white (including around the window) and the entire outside painted green.

    I have since finished caulking the cracks, we have four large fowl pens done, all of the runs 75% done (still need to add covers before birds go out), one of the bantam pens is completed. Oh and I painted a lot of the inside.
