    I started with no real plans just what I read and found on this site. I started with an idea and here is what I came up with. It's all cedar and 1/2" mesh covers the outside of the coop. I trimmed out the entire coop with cedar shingles. I lined the floor with chicken wire and then buried it with 30 bags of sand. The floor is finished up with a bark mulch base that's seems to be easy for the chickens to scratch in and easy clean up. Never muddy! Tin roof keeps birds dry and happy. I did not do the typical boxes but elected to do it like a cabinet instead. As you can see in the pictures. The inside of the coop is lit and the floor is a peel and stick floor tiles and is really easy to clean up. I put cedar shavings inside the coop and keeps any smell down and very easy to clean out. I got the birds as chicks in April and just got 2 eggs this week. The birds are really fun! Hope you enjoy my pictures.
