Re: The coop is being built, yay! New Pictures Added!

looks nice. so you are going to split it into 3 sections? I also guess you will be able to walk through it, store feed, brood chicks, play volleyball... :funny:

I think your need for a heated floor is a lot less than mine :P

The new coop will be awesome, that's a nice sized building :thumbs:

Monika, the new addition looks great, I love the ventilation windows along the top.  I somehow missed this post all together from the start.  :huh:

Re: The coop is being built, yay! New Pictures Added!

It looks great Monika! I was thinking how jealous I am that you don't need to worry about heat or insulation. Your window wall is very nice.

I like Dan's style of roosts, that's what we are planning to build as well. The idea of the plastic boards makes them even better as you can clean them really well that way.

Your nest boxes are very nice too. I haven't fully decided what we'll do for that. I think I will do built ins with access without going to to the coop.

Thanks for posting pictures of your lost finished product!
