    The door will fold down to open and the steps will be attached to that.

    From my living room window, you can see the steps have not been attached yet:

    The lid opens, as does the lid to the nest box lid:

    I love your coop... especially the red. I'm all into the barn-ish looking coops.

    And it gave me a good idea for a way to enlarge mine. I've been tinking about it and couldn't come up with anything.

    Couldn't I do what you did and add another 'room' onto the back with a different little roof?

    This pic shows the inside. So basically I would just cut out part of the wall on the side of the light.

    Think this would work?

    cosmom- I love the coop it so cute. You used metal roofing and I was wondering if that stuff was expensive. I live in Halifax, NS Canada and was wondering where you would buy it. I haven't seen that stuff at Home Depot.
    Also, did you plant at bush or a tree in the pen?

    The metal roofing was left over from another project. Originally it came from our local grange supply, and I don't think it was that expensive.

    The plant was a volunteer. It is a lilac, we have a huge row of lilac bushes.... well really they are more like trees at this point. We are continually trying to control them, they pop up everywhere. But, I guess there are worse problems than lilacs [​IMG]

    I am still trying to figure out roost placement in such a short building.
