    We built a woods style coop with most of the wood roughcut from the pine trees we dropped last year. Dh read the book and built it. Slight modifications were made as it is an 8x12. It is working well!

    Nice looking coop, Is that T 1 11 on the out side? or is it boards?

    Its a new material that is made to look like boards. My husband and I saw it at lowes and it got good reviews when he did research on it. It was cheaper than t-111. Took the stain nicely.

    I know the stuff, Sure all of the framing lumber came off of your property? Your Husband has a Mill?

    That place would make it quite easy to have a sleep over with the chicks!
