    Hey! (and sorry for my english, I'm from Sweden :p )
    Have been start on building our first coop, since we're getting into chickens this spring :-D

    My boyfriend has done a design in the program sketchup and it changes time by time for the better. Inspired by "The Palace Chicken Coop" design.

    This is how far we've come and I'll update with pics.
    What do you guys think? Any advice or tips? :)

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. Like most Scandinavians that I've met, your English is perfect!

    The coop is looking good so far. I'd suggest that you post any questions or requests for tips in the "Coops and run" forum where the experts will help out.

    All the best
