edit: Its done! Thanks to advice on this forum I made a few changes to the design and put it together yesterday and today. For the roof I deviated from the plans a bit and regretted. It was a lot of work but it will hopefully save time later and I think the chickens will like it. Pics of the process and the plans below. Well.... I think its supercool. I am planning on building a coop this weekend and get my chicks out of the leaky shed theyre in now. Acording to my plans this coop should be light, inexpensive, sturdy, simple, apealing to the eye, warm in the short winter, and cool in the long summer. I live in SW Oklahoma so the summers are long and sometimes get into the triple digit temperatures. In the winter it usually gets into freezing temperatures for a month or two. Plans: Building Process: Finished Product: There is a peice of plywood cut for the center of the floor. I set it up so that it will be easy to remove to clean or replace. I will probably paint it next weekend. Any suggestions on color scheme?
