    Hey guys!

    Just thought I'd throw this out there - I've googled like crazy, but can't track down the original photo/website, and we'd like some help identifying the owner of this delightful little coop, since it has been the primary inspiration for our current coop build:

    In the end, I don't think we'll be painting it purple - and we've already taken some liberties with the overall layout, but would love to give credit where credit is due!

    Thanks,
    T&S

    @KatherineNaomi , thanks for the lead! I posted a comment on the blog for the owner to let her know that her coop has been the inspiration behind our design!

    Just out of curiosity, how did you find the blog?

    Thanks,
    T&S

    It was posted on Facebook by "Living Off the Grid" and someone linked the blog in the comments. I had it bookmarked. It's a lovely coop. :) I'd love to see a picture of yours too. We'll be building ours in the next few weeks. We still have 10 inches of snow in our yard. Yuck!

    @KatherineNaomi , it is a lovely coop. We were planning on getting chickens this spring, and I had some idea of what we would need as far as a coop goes, but didn't have any ideas as far as layout/design - then Sue comes home and shows me that picture and says "I want our coop to be like this! It's so nice!"
    At this point, ours is still in progress. [​IMG] It should be ready for the girls to move in within the next two weeks or so, but I don't imagine I will have the painting and landscaping finished for a little bit longer - but I've been posting pics all along the way, and will continue to do so!
    Hopefully the weather will cooperate with you and you guys can start your build soon!
