    My first coop.

    Coop Dims: 4'x6'
    Run Dims: 12'x4' plus small 2'x4' (basically 56 sq ft)

    Spent alot of time on the design but ended up just diving in as I was way over engineering it.

    Still have lots to do, will post as I progress!!!

    Thanks all for all of the great topics, posts, designs and general information!!!

    Looks good so far. Make sure to have a rain gutter on the back to direct water away from the base of the coop and run.
