In the past little while, we have been working on an 8' by 8' chicken coop/house. We have the frame for the walls and roof done (see picture below), however we have talked to numerous people and keep getting different advice of what we need from here on, etc, and it is getting a little expensive, not to mention we have not even started on the run. This has sort of put a damper on our project. We put plywood for the flooring, but apparently it is the wrong type of plywood, and we need to remove the frame from the floor and re-do it. People say the moisture will rot away the plywood in a couple months (even if we put linoleum over it)-in that case, what do we use on the floor?? We were told also that we need to insulate it (I don't even know what type of insulation), and have some plastic and also some black paper against the insulation and also that the roof must have a different plywood under the shingles as well. However, in many photos, there are many sheds not insulated. We live in Vancouver,BC, and the winters can be pretty cold, so I guess they may be right. Also I keep reading about ventilation and the proper place/direction to put them (north and south - though we are planning to put windows in east and west), and it is all getting very confusing for me. Does that even matter? Also for the run, how do I keep coyotes from digging under? The ground is very difficult to dig the wire into, so reading that we need to dig the wire a foot into the ground seems virtually impossible by hand. Any advice or words of wisdom/motivation/personal experiences would be great. It is very difficult to keep searching for information, when many people/sites are saying different things. I really want to get this done, but I'm reaching my wits end, so I really hope people can help me get these factors sorted out here. Thank you.
