Do you mean this style?I am looking to build a 5x8 or 6x8 quaker style coop. I would love to find some plans to look at one that someone built with details. I have been looking all over and have not been able to find any, thanks in advance!

I'd modify it as follows:
With these modifications, you may end up with a decent coop!
- extend the roof over hangs another 6-9" and install the windows so they are top hinged and backed with 1/2" hardware cloth. This will also help protect the top hinged nest box from water infiltration at the hinge joint.
- leave a gap in at the ridge of the roof and install a ridge vent.
- leave all the spaces between the rafters open and cover them with 1/2" hardware cloth before installing the siding.
- cut open the triangle area over the door and the opposite wall and cover it with 1/2" hardware cloth on the inside and a baffle vent on the outside.
Though this roof shape naturally gives more protection to the exterior nest box, which is nice... it still needs all of @DobieLover 's modifications.Dobie,
Similar to that, yes. I want it to be a little bigger (5x8 or 6x8) and quaker coops have offset roof lines.
