    We have finally decided on the coop.
    it's gonna be a half coop, elevated off the ground, with a hinged clear fiberglass roof (for light). Barn style windows. My hubby has decided to build the coop overlapping the existing garden and put 2 doors on the front. One will be exiting into the garden (and kept closed) one into the run. Next year we will switch sides on the run and garden, so the old run is now the garden and fertilized.(and use the other door).
    I am going to plant lavender along the fence line (outside the run and garden) and a lilac bush for shade/cover.
    How's that sound?
    any tips?
