    My favorite part is the crooked stove pipe, which I welded from some scrap pipe.

    I love themed coops. What was your inspiration for this one? I'm doing mine up like a French B&B

    You should use day time invisible glow paint to make the window frames glow at night and maube write a message or make hand prints on the coop.

    It's inspired by Tim Burton. I'm going to add some Victorian-style trim for the coop and nail some minature crooked picket fencing around the top of the run.
