    DH and I were sitting around discussing the upcoming building of the coop and run. Me telling him what I want, and him telling me 'that's impossible'. LOL [​IMG]

    Anyway, at the end of our session where we've discussed placing the shed up against our rental cottage for quite some time, he says "I think you have to place a redi-shed at least 10 feet from any structure".

    I'm looking, but I can't find specific details about non-foundation sheds online.

    I suppose I'll have to call the City tomorrow.

    not to mention that if you put a chicken coop near any other structure used as a residence, the likelihood of a mouse problem increases for your renters....

    Even if we put the shed 10 feet from the rental cottage, that wouldn't fix a mice problem!

    I found some rules about placement of buildings. They have to be 10 feet from the front/back property line, and either 10 or 8 feet from the side line. That would put the danged 10' x 7' shed right smack in the middle of our backyard!

    We may have to rethink using such a large shed as our coop, dang it! I guess we could sell the Redi-shed and build a small wooden coop. sigh. [​IMG]
