After much research and design thoughts, I have cur wood and framed the first wall. the design originally was to be about 4 x 4 with an attached run on 6 more feet allowing the girls to roam under the coop. The final (current) design will be a 6' wide x 4' deep coop. The floor is 30" from the ground, plenty of room for them to roam under with. I decided to seperate the run from the coop in case I want to move it someday. The Run will be attached and be 8' wide and 4' deep. Basic design considerations... We decided no pressure treated wood in the coop and run. So I am using cedar where ground contact is made. I am using Fir for the rest of the framing. Pretty much everything will be painted with Ben Moore porch paint. Classic colors of white and red. the floor in the coop will be split into 2 removable boards covered with Vinyl. We hope this makes cleaning easier. I will post more as it progresses and I will be taking lots of pictures. So far I have one wall framed. No pictures will be posted until next week. I would to be able to show a little of what I was able to create over the weekend. I will also include more details of the design later.
