First time back yard chicken owner, well the little will be here within a month! First off, Backyardchickens.com is great source of knowledge, I have learned so much here that I designed, integrated and am building my coop off others ideas from this forum. Thanks everyone that contributes. Okay, one my neighbor named my coop the Red Neck chicken coop because I'm "WE", we being me and another neighbor, are making this coop for less then $200. Most of our materials have been for Free! The chicken coop is 8' X 10' Here is the base frame. Three 2" X12" and Two 2" X 10, I had them laying around ones pressure treated the rest are not. In the back ground are 2" X 6" X 7' there are for all the joists, neighbor gets them for free from work that is why they are 7' long. The 80lbs cinder blocks were around my old fire pit the will be used for the footers. Everything fee so far! Floor is complete. Ground is still frozen so I had to shim the cinder blocks, Southern NH is March who would have guest. No worrys have a couple 20 ton floor jacks that will render that problem obsolete. Okay, so the floor is a rubber backed flooring used in commercial buildings a friend gave me a couple years ago, put it in my basement but had so much left over and already bought the glue thought the chickens would like it (neighbor complained that I should have installed it in his house instead). It looks like a hardwood floor. Also the floor will be pitched 1/2" to the rear where the clean out door will be. I'm going to put this same flooring wrapped on the walls up 9" so that the coop will be water tight on the floor to allow for easy cleaning with a hose a couple time a year. Walls are all framed. I made a gig on the floor and framed all the walls moved them aside. Two framing guns, one siding gun and nails. No charge. Love my contractor fiends that owe me. Okay those may cost me a case of beer, so lets add $25 on to my total. Well worth it. [email protected] The Greek watching my brother work... Walls are together! All the plywood is on. Door is on the bottom right of the picture. The opening on the side is where the nesting boxes are going. The white you see is a tarp over my tools in the shed. The windows are two different sizes because I used a split framed window, the top and bottom part of the window have an inch difference. Hope to post current pictures of the coop tomorrow but we will see. But to give an update... The door and windows are in the nesting box is built. The interior is insulated and painted. There is a 7' ramp going to the door. Also the electrical is completed. There is an outside plug, two inside. Three gang box light switch inside. One for the outside motion sensor lights, one for the top internal light, one for a plug that will run the heat lamps. Thanks for all the comments!
