Nice looking coop and run.
Very clean design and build.
I agree. Super nice!
How big is this? And about how many chickens will it hold? My dad and I are about to start building ours, and I'm trying to get ideas...
The coop is 4 x 4 inside and the pen is 4 x 8 ( which = 4 x 12 total exterior space ). Following the 4sf per bird rule ... 4 birds.
I used rough sawn lumber and plywood for the exterior, standard (cheap) plywood for the floor (1/2 sheet) and osb for the roof panels. If you use metal roofing or corregated roof panels you could omit the osb and skip sheet it (to save a few pennies). Construction glue and screws work great. I use stain instead of paint just because I don't have to prime before staining.
very nice looks like a job well done
Oh how I wish I could build a coop on my own! What a beautiful job you did on yours! Thanks for sharing! Good luck with the chickens you get to fill it.
Wow, that looks identical to all those pre made UK coops I was drooling over recently, LOL
We are starting our coop this weekend! So excited! Your looks awesome! Your 4 hens will be soooo happy!
