Lest this question appear idiotic, please know that you're dealing with a construction idiot. I've never built anything before. This website's been great, but I've gotten to another place where I need to ask for advice. I've got my foundation laid, and tomorrow, I should have the wall framing done. I'm a bit stumped as to how to put the pieces together, though. I'll be attaching a Douglas fir 2x4 to a pressure treated 4x4. I'm tempted to use a lot of 2 inch deck screws (screwing through the 2 inch side of the 2x4 into the 4x4. I think it should sink about 1/2 inch into the 4x4) because I have a lot of 2 inch deck screws. I don't know if that will be stable enough, though. Any ideas? If you need an image, I'm basically doing the same thing foundation/framing wise as this coop.
