    Get a book (from library or bookstore) on building SHEDS, or kids' playhouses. Many many books like that have detailed plans and step-by-step instructions with photos of every moment in the process.

    Add more ventilation, a popdoor and a roost, and you've got a coop [​IMG]

    Good luck, have fun,

    Purina has a free, simple coop design with material list here. Easy to build and very functional! I used their design but I doubled the size for - more chickens! [​IMG]
