    We are located in western MD and have been designing rustic and cottage style coops for a few years. The basic designs have been transforming into these awesome structures as the more affluent folks have decided to get into chickens. It's funny when we get asked for solar power, chandeliers, cupolas, screen doors and all these extras I wouldn't have thought to add. Here's some of our recent ones. I wish I could afford to keep a few. Would love to design myself a village complete with saloon and a church and some little cottages.

    We try incorporate reclaimed items into our coops to give them an aged look. The door and windows of the coop below have no nails in them. They are all notched and pegged and have wavy glass. The door to the above coop we made using an old window and barn wood.

    Out of curiosity, what is the going price for the two coops above? They look great!

    A basic 8 x 6 is 2k.. that comes with nesting boxes and flower boxes and cute windows and doors but, the run is extra and she added two extra windows and it will get screen doors with custom tree branch handles to match the custom tree branch roost and it has solar power and auto door and a front porch stoop to place potted plants..

    Just the material for this coop so far is in the 1k range..
