Hello All, I picked up the coop design from baldessariclan and I am re designing it to fit my 6'x12' idea. I am a cabinet maker by trade with 22 years exp. so this is going to be a little bit different from what I am use to building. I think I can do it Below is the sketch up file so far. I am pulling dimensions on all parts so I have a full set of plans, this way I can rock out in the shop cut all parts and then take them out to the site and build!!!! I found a good deal for lumber on Craig list Tampa it is about 100) 2x4s, 7) 2x6, 11) T1-11 sheets and 2) windows for $200!!!!!!! I have to de nail them and clean them up. I need to clean them up soon they are blocking my shop entrance this picture is the start of de nailing the lumber. I also have the spot picked out on the side of my house, and staked off ready for the blocks to be leveled and put in. you cannot see the string level in this picture but the ground is about 8" drop in 12'. so I have a bunch of digging going to happen!!!!! I want the left side of the coop blocks to be about 2" above the ground so if it rains hard the water will not run into the coop. I will post pictures as I progress, I am not in a rush since I don't have the hens as of yet so I get to take my time and build this as nice as I can, then start hunting for the girls for the coop.
