    Finished the coop I think from a play house to a chicken coop. This is the old playhouse converted to the guest (chicken coop) house. Because of the playhouse location towards the front of our backyard we had to hide it. The neighbor was ok with the idea of the coop hurdle one cleared. Next a simple but functional design that was clean. The chicken coop is 4'x8'x 5' high at the peak. The run is 16'x 4' with a height of 4' up to 7'. The poop door is in the floor not by choice I am working on a fix that will eliminate pine shaving from litter the ground. The paint was extra we had for the interior and exterior of the our house. Most of the 2X4's were was recycled from a skate board ramp. The plexigass windows on the sides of the coop were one piece. I just remove the plexiglass cut in half and may some channels for it to open and close. The hardware cloth is fasten to eye bolts with ty wraps for easy removal to clean the windows. The flooring is vynal flooring left over from our kitchen remodel. We dug a trench around the base as noted on BYC for we do have preditors with in city limits.

    Time to get strated.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
