I am construction my coop a 7x17 all in one with a 4x7 raised coop. How has everyone braced the floors on their coops. I have 4x4 for the corner post and bought some joist brace but they will not allow me to brace on the outer edge of the 4x4 post. Any insight on how you have done this would be appreciated. I have also included pictures of the process so far. -Garth- the foreman helping build the walls finally standing All walls attached now just to figure out how to brace the coop floor.
