    I'm a newbie, and figured I'd post my coop/shed/kids fort combo pictures. I've used mostly scrap or recycled material. I'm not quite done, but will post more when I get there. That's me on the right.

    The bottom floor through the main doors is the shed part. From there there's a door to the coop, which is 4'x10'. You can see the run on the right side. Of course on top is the fort, which isn't quite done. I've got 12 chickies in the coop now.

    I hope your hens don't mind your kids on the second floor. It could freak them out. Mine don't like it when they hear a cat on the roof.

    Actually, it's not bad. I've been in the coop when the kids have been up there, and since the fort is not actually over the coop, it's not that loud. I've actually still been building up there ie. hammering and sawing, and the chickens don't seem to be bothered.[​IMG]

    That's really cool! If I ever move out of my subdivision, I'm going to have to build something like that!
