Workin' on the Coop

Posted 2/21/2012 10:21am by Joshua Reinitz.

I built our chicken coop about 3 years ago with leftover materials from our house, and some salvaged barn lumber.  I had framed in rough openings for windows at the time, but we covered them with clear plastic until we could find windows. 

Well, here we are a couple years later and i have been putting a lot of time in the coop lately in order to finally finish it so I can move on to other buildings.  We have insulated the interior and covered it with paneling, and I built some old-fashioned style double-hung windows using old sashes i've salvaged from houses. 

Next step is to put siding on the coop because we're sick of looking at plywood.  I have lots of galvanized steel roofing material, so I think I'll put that on for siding.  It will end up looking quite industrial, but hey, it's free!  Check out the picures of the new windows in the chicken coop, and the chickens in their nice warm house.
