    We're total newbies and our construction skills are, well, minimal. But we're also newbie homeowners and this was our first big renovation project! (A friend laughed that we renovated our chicken coop before we fixed up our new house, ha.)

    Check it out on my blog and tell me what you think! We're planning to rebuild the coop completely in a few years and make a nice walk-in one, and possibly expand our flock at that time too, so I'd love any tips you'd like to share. Thanks!

    Love how you took the free coop and tricked it out to suit your situation. Those hens should be pretty happy now !

    Haha... "Yo dawg, I heard you like chickens! I think I can hook you up!"

    Thank you all so much for the kind comments! It's raining today and we just checked it... water-tight! Nice and dry in the coop and the food underneath is also nice and dry. The hens are doing great, yay!
