Is there any free software that will tell me exactly what size to cut the wood, etc for my coop?

I'm new to building and I'm basically framing it like a house or nice shed. I have 2 big windows (2'h x 4'w) and a house sized door going into an 8x8' coop.

Thanks!

I'm afraid I have no answer for you, but DANG I think that's a great idea! It'd be so neat if there was a program that could customize designs, size according to needs and then prepare a shopping list. Hope you find something that will help, I'm no builder either!

Most anyone who is in the home building business can give you a material list and and cutting list for a building to the size you want. I do it with my customers when they ask. I build my coops simple as I can. You sound like you know what you want and have some great Idea's ask a local builder to help you or I will help you as much as I can

Hello,
I saw a post last night (sorry can't find it) where someone used google sketchup to design their coop. It was very neat! If you look up sketchup they do have a professional version they sell, but there is a basic edition you can download for free.
