Here is my new vinyl coop the kids and I put together. (okay, we did have some help with the foundation. I can NOT overstress the importance of the word LEVEL!!) I have to compliment Hillcrest, the maker, as the intructions were PERFECT and everything was pre-drilled and labeled beautifully.

The girls were going crazy!! They loved it. But boy was it quiet inside last night












How do you beat this view???

Where did you get it and how much did it cost, if you don't mind me asking? I have been looking for something similar. Looks great.

My Coop
Great pics! I am hoping to get working on my coop this weekend...especially now that the chicks are getting big and loud! All this spring snow has hindered my progress.

Jeaucamom, where are you at? Looks like we could be beighbors with that view! LOL

We are in Grass Valley CA so I imagine we have much of the same looking surroundings. Although, I sure wish I was up there with all the snow!!

We got this shed at Lowe's, they are on clearance because they are not making this model anymore. It was still close to a thousand dollars though. Lot's of money, but not too much more than what I paid for all the material for my 4x8 that I had to build from scratch and took enormous amounts of time and energy and is a very poor example of architecture LOL! So for me, it was well worth it.

A fine looking coop. Would you consider painting the exposed lumber and decking, it would make it last much longer, also seal the bottom of the coop to the deck with caulking, silicon caulk or butyl caulk would be great.

Yes, that is on the to do list. Hopefully in the next week or so. Is the caulking to prevent water getting under the coop and rotting the wood??
