I'm updating this old thread with the finished product. DH just finished enclosing the run today! The coop is 8'x8'. It's 10 feet tall in the front and 8 feet tall in the back. The run is approx 30'x20'. We have eleven polish chickens (currently 11 weeks old) in it. In the beginning: We had a frame: And some plywood: But the plywood looked awful, so we added siding: And some paint and a little trim: And here is the inside: Skylights! Roosts 6 feet up (because the coop is ridiculously tall): Roost Ladder thing: Fully furnished and occupied: We had a run building party where we poured many THOUSANDS of pounds of concrete: Front of the coop/run: Back of the coop/run: Detail of how the front door was enclosed so we could leave it open in the summer for ventilation: Run roof: Happy chickens: At some point we will add a ramp for the pop door and fill the holes in the run where the support poles are with more dirt/rock/concrete. There are always a few minor details to be worked out. But for now, they are safe and it is fully functional.
