    thats awesome, especially for a first attempt! I've helped put up southern coops and livestock shelters since i was 12, but I sure can't cut straight worth a darn, and being left handed seems to have something to do with this I am convinced I'm like confused everything is uneven either in cut or in sitting that I mainly attempt on my own. [​IMG] lol but anyway your coop is looking awesome, much nicer than my little silkie "Fuzzbucket express" its a wood coop with PVC run its supposed to be a tractor eventually when I get some wheels to throw on it. until then its a mini coop [​IMG]

    That looks fantastic! I never would have guessed that you were a n aewbie to coop building. Similar concept to mine, but better execution![​IMG]

    Nice looking -- very smart to use the side of the barn -- not only for durability, but for shade -=- your chicks will thank you.

    Don't forget ventilation.

    That's really great! [​IMG]

    Don't forget to either bury the hardware cloth, or make an apron around the outside to deter predators.

    You've given me inspiration. [​IMG]

    Very Nice indeed! You have room to pull those pastic bins in and out to clean them?

    When you are finished come make me one!
