Due to work schedules, flooding and all around bad weather, our coop was seriously delayed. But hopefully this weekend it will be done. All we have left is some paint, latches & knobs, nesting boxes, the ladder and the roost. The boxes on the top are for a green roof (we're planting herbs & succulents in there, and there is a door on the side by the deck for access to the nesting boxes. One last thing to finish also is the storage area over the left but that's not critical to getting the chickens outside full time. We've got 4 nearly full grown chickens living in the house at night! I guess they could probably stay in the run but I'm not 100% comfortable with that although it is quite secure. The coop is insulated, ventilated, has vinyl flooring, trim, you name it. It weighs a ton and is super secure. We're mostly waiting for the paint to completely air out. The plan is to finish off the trim with a fun purple for accent, and maybe add some more decorative pieces later. But for now - we'd love any feedback - is there anything we're missing? Any comments on construction? This project was done mostly out of reclaimed lumber, scraps and a lot of ingenuity and hard work. Using used lumber made the squaring off difficult but we're pretty happy with the way our design turned out. We did buy new the hardware cloth, some of the plywood and the hardware. Our total financial investment so far on this is about $300 but if you add in the work my husband has put into it - yikes! The cool thing is that it is really custom - suits the back of the house perfectly and seems to fit all the criteria for happy chickens and a happy 8 year old (who is planning on painting polka dots on it).
