    Well I did it. It took me 8 weeks. Lots of blood, sweat, and cash. The chooks are now 8 weeks as well and huge!

    I planned this build on two different things. My first was coop in the woods. She did a great job on their coop and was my inspiration. I thank them for posting their story. I also purchased a shed plan and used some things from that as well.

    Here it is. Thanks.

    Huh? <scratcheshead>

    That is one of the best coop and runs I've ever seen!
    Man, you did your homework, that's for sure.
    You are gonna love that come the frigid ChiTown Winter!

    One suggestion and one 'warning'.
    Flip your nest access door so hinges are on the bottom.
    They may choose to roost on the ladder in the run, since it's higher than the coop roosts.

    It’s beautiful! Fantastic job!

    I will say I laughed a bit when I read ‘and hopefully my last’ - good luck with that! Lol!
