Coop 1: Ashley and Family’s Garden Coop “Limo” with Exterior Nest Boxes, Arkansas

“This was the very first project available for my spouse and i, and i’m so pleased with the way it switched out. We absolutely couldn’t did this without your plans or perhaps your additional help and solutions to my questions. I purchased your hardware package out of your website, and i believe despite our extension the only real factor I needed to buy any other of were two corner braces and additional hinges and clasps for that exterior nest boxes. I really needed to make very couple of changes towards the plans to be able to extend it.”

Coop 3: Andy’s Taller Garden Coop, Chico, California

“I really enjoyed building this coop. Didn’t have done any framing before. Only changes were making it nine inches taller and adding the galvanized metal roof, cedar plank fence board siding, used window, front porch. Incidentally, if I needed to get it done once again, I’d purchase your hardware package. I purchased my hardware in your own home Depot, also it was exactly the same cost, otherwise a bit more.Inches

“To accommodate the slope in our lot, we built a split-level chicken house with two 8′x8′ roofs more than a 7′ tall, 6′ lengthy henhouse along with a 6.5′ tall, 7.5′ lengthy run. Kristin found details about the ‘poop hammock’ online, and also the design she created for your — canvas thrown on PVC pipes — continues to be extremely effective for catching the majority of their nocturnal output, and it is real simple for us to clean from the poop every few days, hose from the residue, and air-dry inside a couple of hrs.”

Coop 7: Janet’s “Gizzard Gulag” with Flower Box and Squirrel House, Boise, Idaho

“I love the coop, lots of space in my four hens. The instructions were very obvious. Best yet, you were readily available when questions sprang up. If you recall, I had been the mathematics-challenged woman who couldn’t work out how many roof panels to buy using the extended design. After one email exchange, I had been off and running.”

Coop 9: David’s Chicken and Guinea Fowl House, North Carolina

“Just desired to say how pleased I’m with my Garden Coop! My five chickens and 4 guineas make it their happy home for 8 several weeks now. The dirt floor is included with deep pine nick litter. The coop floor is FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic — great stuff) as well as deep litter. Roof is leftover metal roofing from the house. Because the construction progressed, I acquired more creative and strayed in the plans more. Lots of good access with hanging doorways inside and outside is essential. I lay a sheet of rigid foam insulation within the ceiling from the coop if this (rarely) will get cold within seaside New York.”

I possibly could hardly believe Cole as he explained that he’d used our intends to build this coop. It must function as the largest Garden Coop yet, and also the perfect someone to complete this publish. . .

“I obtained a 18 x 20 carport and built five coops underneath at our farm. I made use of Yellawood for that frame. Basically, I could build four Garden Coops each and every corner and something lengthy Garden Coop in the centre. Along side it coops are pretty near to the original design, roughly 10 foot deep and 6 ft wide. The main one in the centre is 6 foot wide and 20 foot deep. I’m happy with the actual way it switched out.”
