    OK, guys, here it is!

    This is the modified Playhouse Design, we changed the hen house from 2x4' to 4x4'. Here is the link where I talk more about the mess of building it: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=9204


    But, onto the photos!!!

    The coop was originally going to be in the garden, but due to the next door neighbor Jack Russel Terrier who was digging under the fence already (just with them free ranging!!). In an effort not to create a situation where we were frustrated with the neighbors and he was frustrated with us, we moved it to the other side of the house. It is between our woodpile and the house, but next to neighbors who have always lived next to chickens, so no worries there!

    I love it great job! I was thinking of adding flower boxes to mine too and painting the porch to make it look cute.

    Wow! What a great looking coop, looks alot like mine [​IMG]
    Strange how that works when we both modified that design hehe.
    I think yours looks a little more like the original then mine does though.
    Great Job!

    That is one awesome coop...

    Excellent job!

    I put mine on patio blocks to discourage any digging...

    Awesome. One question, though, where's the nest box(es)?
