Well, there may be one or two minor things to do, but this will probably be it for the blog. As I mentioned in #1 this is my first coop and I did the plans myself. All in all it was a fun project and tested my design skills with some of the angles and details.
There is one feature in particular that I am rather happy with; I rabetted the edges of the trim around the chicken door and used them as a pathway for the door to slide open vertically. It is attached via para cord on either side and then goes through a couple of eye bolts to a cleat at the edge. This allows me to open and close the door without having to get into the pen and lift it manually. you can see that best in this pic:
Here are some alternate views of the entire coop.
I hope you enjoyed my project. Please feel free to leave comments—I would love to hear what you think.
