The Chicken Coop Project
In June of 2015 I started a “summer” project of building a chicken coop. Things took much longer than expected and I ended up finishing the building in March of 2016. I documented the build here in eight posts. I find that on my website it can be a little difficult to find things, so I’m indexing the project here to make it easy to see all the posts in the series.
I’ll update the above photo once I give the coop a coat of paint this summer.
So, here are the posts. Click on the title of each to read the post:
Clearing the land and running underground power supply.
Building forms and pouring a concrete footer.
Mud sill, joists, and flooring. All the walls are framed.
Making all the roof trusses, installing them, sheathing, and shingling the roof.
Wall sheathing, insulation, electrical, windows, door, trim, siding, and interior paint.
Poop pit and nesting box door. Poop pit tray, flooring, roosts, and all interior paint done. The chicks move in.
Mortise and tenon doors for the outdoor run. Hardware cloth wrap.
Nesting boxes and window screens.
I hope you enjoyed this series.
