Absolutely GORGEOUS!!!

And you can tote it to the store too so you don't have to leave your babies at home!! No, seriously...

I just want to tell you this too:

The fencing you selected will allow weasels and rats to enter the coop. They kill chickens happily. Hardware cloth will not let predators in. I recommend screwing some on with large washers (yes, the windows, too).

Beautiful coop!

Out to pasture
how large is the coop, looks like alot of chickens in there. Chicken wire won't help, it won't stop raccoons and other determined predators. You really do need the hardware cloth.

Need to relocate the licence plate and tail lights, add a fold out run and then you could tow them behind your RV and tour America!

I think it looks nice. As long as you have coverings for the door and windows you will be fine. I couldn't tell it was your first one looks professional. What are you going to call it.
