    Started my coop this weekend out of some extra lumber. I had seen this type of coop and liked it. I sketched up my own plans after looking at many pictures online. I will post more pictures as I make progress.

    Thanks for sharing your build with us! I love seeing how others build their coops. I always see something new in every coop I see.

    What a great job! And my, what a clean work area. DH would be so thrilled if I could keep my work space looking like that.
