    I finally have my coop finished. It has taken a lot longer than I ever thought it would. It was kinda fun and kinda frustrating. I tried to make a small footprint, but keep it functional. Thanks goes out to everyone here at BYC for their help and for the wealth of knowledge available by searching the forums.

    <--- Take a look at my BYC page.

    Also wondering if I have to do something to have this show up on the Coop Designs section of the website?

    Nice, thanks for sharing the pics of your build... I've ended up with some pretty large gaps I need to fill between my floor and the 2x4s.

    Great looking coop, clear pictures. What are the dimensions of the floor and ceiling height?

    Very nice..

    I would have put the roost a little higher... I guess you could always add another.

    I think you have to enter the contest that just closed (see the first thread in this section of the board). Don't worry there will be another one soon!

    Nice coop!
