Hey Everyone,

Well it's done, took me over a week to do cause of my darn hernia's but proud to say that I managed to get it all done and the tenants are moved in and happy :woohoo:

With my latest additions of a quad of Black Orpingtons and my New Silver Laced Wyandottes I had decided to make them a brand new Coop all their own.
Working with a very small budget but going new on all materials I decided to make a 4x8 coop tall enough that I can stand up in it if need be allowing more than enough room for the 6 new occupants, and a possible two more down the road. I designed my coop using Google Sketchup, which made things a great deal easier to visualize. I never really looked at the plans after I bought the lumber, it was in my head after that.

Total Cost of materials $320.00

Google Sketchup makes things easier when it comes to putting everything into perspective and trying to get an idea on materials needed.

LOL no worries.... you bet there are Roosts and they are inside... there are two roosts that run across the top of the walls I used rafters or bracing as my two Roosts, I can't find a picture right now but I will take one tonight.

I don't have a pic but I can illustrate with this picture from sketch up
