I'm designing my coop and looking for advice. If anyone has the time to review my drawings and offer advice on what to do (or not to do), I would appreciate it a lot. Here's a quick draft I did in Google Sketch-up. I'm still working on the interior layout, but here's the basic spec: Run is 6'x12' (3' High). Half is covered by the coop. The coop is 6'x6' (5' High + "attic" space) The door is on the floor of the coop (14"x12") on a ramp set at a 45° angle. There will be a 36"x48" storm window added (south facing). The Window will be hinged for access into the coop. The Wire frame on top of the run will also be removable should I need to get in there. The roof will be vented at the ridge. A feeder (50lb Grain capacity) will be built into the coop from floor to ceiling with a hatch on the outside for refilling. Water will be handled similarly with an auto-filler and aeration + heater. It's hard to see in the picture, but the door has a 3" wall around it to help keep in the straw and wood shavings. Before I start building this, Is there anything I'm overlooking? Anything that I should consider changing? All advice and criticism is welcome. I only want to have to build this once. Click Thumbnail for a larger view. The Sketchup file is here if you want to play around with the actual model.
