    We have a monsterous 8x4x6 foot coop that we are building right now and the thing looks hideous covered in OSB. I'm looking for insipration on ways to make it more attractive, because you can see this huge rectangle thing from the road and it's an eye sore. It sits off the ground on 2ft 4x4 legs. I can't afford a lot of extras - I would love to cover it in that beadboard type wood, but it's just not in the cards. SOOOOO...show me your pretty OSB coops! :)

    I'll try to find pictures of several stages of an OSB coop I built as a temporary grow out coop but it turned out to be a semi-permanent structure. It was pretty ugly. Paint helped a lot. You could put some trim strips on the corners and around windows painted a contrasting color.
    Eventually you'll want to cover the OSB with siding because OSB doesn't hold up in weather even with paint.
