Hello all! After reading all the good info here for a long time, I finally became a member. I am in the process of building my very first chicken coop, and pretty much first time constructing anything of this complexity. I promised my daughters they would have chickens come spring and I intend to follow through. With my slim knowledge of construction, I have made it to the point that I think I have a good foundation on which to start, but could really use some advice on moving forward. I want to build a woods style coop similar to JackE's :https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/445004/woods-style-house-in-the-winter . The big difference is I want it to be a dirt floor coop. Right now I have a base of cement blocks 6' x 10', and was considering using pressure treated 6x6's as the next level. Reason being I have them handy (but only 8' lengths) and I want to use the deep litter method, so I figured between the blocks and the PT 6x6's that should give me plenty of depth for litter. Anyway, Other than knowing the style I want the final product to be, I need some good nut's and bolts advice on how to move forward. Are the 6x6's a good idea, or not. I want to use as many "found" materials as possible, but not at the expense of later issues. I have available here tons of old solid 8x2 PT lumber from decking and quite a few 4x4 posts up to 10'. If you are still reading, sorry about my rambling! Will attach some pics shortly.
