    Well, you could do a rough sketch of the outside, front, side, back, top, bottom views. Then you could do the framing sketch; top, bottom, etc...

    google sketchup is amazing. takes a little time to get used to it - but a free 3d drawing tool...
    theres also several plans you can purchase online, like the gardencoop and also chicken coop building for dummies book [​IMG]

    We got by simply drawing out the coop with dimensions written in then building from there. I'm on my phone so the best pic I can do is a link to my blog post where I shared my design. I can't believe it was back in February!

    Good luck. Keep it simple!
