    I'm finally through with my very first coop...It is 8x8 and 7ft. tall on the front side and 61/2 ft tall on the back side. It has Thompson's water sealant on the outside. I still have to prime and paint it tomorrow...I have to put the ladder on the roost

    Very nice, and good job. The painting and priming took us a long time, it started to rain.

    Is there any need in priming or painting on the inside...It shouldn't get wet in there..The floors are treated plywood..

    We didn't prime or paint the inside of ours. We put plastic on the floor of the coop.
