Finally, after a year of designing and researching and weeks of prep work, the coop of my dreams is finally up and I just had to share! It is the Quik-Shed from Lowes. We got it on sale for $849 and I am thrilled at the quality of it. The directions say it should take 2 1/2 hours with two people building it, Ah no, but it still did go up pretty quickly once all the walls were assembled, which took a full day. The foundation took another full all day to build and level. We are working on the tar paper and shingles yet today before the rain hits again tonight. We decided not to insulate it because it is really tightly built. If needed, we can always go back and do that quickly. All the little finishing touches need to be added over the next two weekends like the nest boxes moved from the old coop, new roosting poles installed, a window, painting (iced cantaloupe is the color, lol) and vents put in (we are using floor vents we couldn't make fit in the house). My husband is also putting in drainage corners inside for my waterers so the floor won't rot. We are fencing in two temporary runs for the girls while we build the permanent 8 foot fence around the back and side of the house which will include buried hardware cloth and retaining wall bricks. Nothing is getting into my girls I will also be covering the runs with netting to prevent hawks (never seen one but not taking any chances) and from the chickens flying out. In total, the run space will be about 23'x26'. The coop itself is 8'x10'. I will post more photos as everything comes together. The foundation with about 6" of gravel for drainage and dig-proof protection built out of pressure treated wood. We put the foundation that came with the shed kit on top of the pressure treated foundation my husband built. We primed it and will be sealing the floor with a non-skid waterproof paint. North facing wall. My husband made the chicken doors exactly like I wanted them. The extra plywood inside seals the edges to keep out drafts. I wanted them to open inward and have heavy bolts on them for predator safety. There are two of them because I will have two runs which allow me to close off one side if needed for growing grass etc or I can have both runs (and doors) open for maximum usage. I also wanted two doors and runs so when I need to introduce new chickens to the flock, I can keep them separate inside and out. He will be building a temporary divider inside the coop for this purpose.
