Chicken Coop

I have more pictures, but I've hit the limit...

The coop is 100% cedar except for the plywood sides/doors.

Fun to build.

The plans are great, but not prefect. Make sure you measure everything out before cutting. I had several problems with errors in the plans. Use them as a guide, and like I said, measure before making cuts.

This project could be done in a weekend, but I ended up putting a lot of time into it. Close to 4 weeks from start to end, probably 3 full time days, and a few hours here and there on odd days. It just depends how anal you are I guess, haha! The finished product speaks for it self.

Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Cedar, plywood
Finish Used
All the cedar was left natural and untreated.

All the plywood was painted with "HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams Weathershield Tintable Satin Acrylic Exterior Paint" Color was Backcountry Green...
