    I have not built or made something in wood since high school and that was years ago.

    My new coop is 8ft long and stands about 4ft high on the legs, the actual living space is 8ft long by about 2x2 ft square, and the box at the left side is for roosting.

    It is fairly light and can be moved around easily. I will be keeping small bantams in it.

    I hope you like my work!

    Good job.

    Now you can move it around and fertilize the yard!

    Very nice. When you decide to get 50 chickens, you can use it for bunnies!
