    I'm planning on building a 4'x8' coop thats 8' tall with a sloped roof. I need ideas on doors, windows and interior. Time to replace the 4'x4' coop for a larger flock. I think this might get expensive

    I just want to see the basic design of home built coops around the same size as the one I plan on building

    It may not be that expensive if you are able to do the work yourself. You also can save $$$ if you shop around for materials. Another option is to use slightly used materials, or construction left overs that peeps might be getting rid of. Check Craigs list. ( I do not know your location, but here where I live, MUCH is available at times). If you want IDEAS on design, click COOPS at the top of the page.

    Click on the links for medium and large in the link I gave you and there will be many home built coops your size.

    Many have bill of materials and schematics.
