Well today I started on my wifes chicken coop. I didnt have any plans that I went off of, she just gave me a bunch of pictures of coops she liked online and i made a crude sketch and material list one night at work. The coop is 4'x4', with 3'x4' being living space. The other 1'x4' is a built in nest box and storage area. The run is 8'x4' and will be covered. This is a far as I have gotten, just waiting on a nice day to move it out of the garage and finish it up once its in place. If anyone has any recommendations or tips so far into this project let me know. $300 later we are home from Menards with all supplies The walls staring to come together. Coop house and nest box framing coming together. Everything that may be exposed to weather thats not treated lumber, gotva coat of green paint thatcmy wife pickec out.
