I think we've all suffered from this at one time or another so I though I would share my dream coop with ya'll! My darling redneck husband said "hal no!" so I am stuck with a coop that I keep threatening to burn down! Since I can't have this coop, I would at least like someone else to! So if you like it you can find the complete instructions by following this link: http://www.rd.com/images/offer/fh/project_plans/pdf/FH03JAu_GardenShed.pdf It's actually a garden/potting shed but I thought because of the two separate areas it would make the perfect coop. I did incorporate some of the architectural details into my own coop only to discover that I am not a gifted carpenter! Little does my husband know that with all the matterials I've wasted with my "learning experiences" (at best he'd call them mistakes) it would have been cheaper to build the coop he said we couldn't afford!
