    I was looking through the Woods design of open air poultry houses and came across this site.
    I love this idea for a coop....has anyone bought/built one of these?
    Wish I seen this design before building mine.

    I have one in upstate NY and love it!
    Mine is 8' x 16'.
    For my own situation it worked best to face the house east. I have a little snow blow in the front but not enough to cause any sort of issues

    Thanks JackE,[​IMG] I love it, nice big, bright and airy.
    If and when I ever, ever build another one I will be picking this design.
    For now, the memory of my building frustrations is all too fresh in my mind still

    PS what dimensions is your coop?
