Thanks for sharing great building of Our friends

Hi Frank,
I was surfing the web and found your fantastic web site. You're quite a builder/carpenter I must say. You should be very proud of your skills in drawing plans and making graphics of what the project will look like...... I'm very impressed!! I would like to take you up on your kind offer of free plans, Frank. I look forward to receiving them :-)
I like all of them and I am not sure if I am going to build chicken coop 101, 102 or 103.........those are the three I like the best.
...
...
Hi Frank,
Thank you so much for your reply. It's nice to meet you too.
I would like for you to send me the M103 chicken coop plans using inches. I really like that model where the chickens can have the outside door and inside chicken run door when I am away for the day. Once it gets built I will send you the pictures.
...
...
Hi Frank,
I just wanted to keep you updated as promised on the progress of the chicken coop using your plan. I will send you more pictures as the coop progresses.
...
...
We had the first part of our chicken coop delivered today (not to be confused with Rey's pigeon loft) and we have it in the back acre now. It was built by our contractor friend in Pomona and he trailered it out to our place yesterday. We took some pictures of it at the shop where it was built and then in Acton. It is stout and of good construction.......It took six guys to move it off the trailer as I drove the truck/trailer forward.
...
...
The roof trusses and roofing material are being stored in the RV garage and the rest of the coop will be assembled on site. It still needs the nesting boxes, galvanized pull out trays for cleaning, egg laying boxes, automatic doors so that they closed in the evening as it gets dark, and of course the caged portion of the run so that when the chickens aren't out wandering around the property all day they will be safe from predators behind the wire.
...
...
An update on Rey's pigeon loft........... Yesterday we met with the gentlemen we hired to do all of the leg work for processing the building permits with the Los Angeles County building department. We gave him the plans that Rey's cousin, Vince Ang, put together on his drafting program so that we can get a permit for the 700 square foot pigeon loft.
...
























Couldn't have done it without your design!!!
Everyone that sees our coop says it's the nicest coop they've ever seen.....
Nicest in all of Los Angeles county. Thank you Rob

Thanks for sharing great building of Our friends:

Hi,
Here are 2 photos of the coop I built from your design.I had to add a few more roof timbers because of the extreme snow load here in Maine,but other than that I followed your plan.The interior is fully insulated and covered with tongue and groove knotty pine boards--people tell me it is the nicest chicken coop they have ever seen. Thank You !

...
Hi Frank,
Construction cost was around $2,500 and it took 2 months working alone and fighting the unpredictable spring weather here in Maine.
...
Hi Frank,
Here's the front view of my coop with it's happy occupants.Instead of using 1" boards for roof sheathing, I used 1/2"exterior plywood,but I used a 4"x4" ridge timber supported by upright 4"x4" supports on both ends and in the middle because of our winter snow load.For the lid over the nesting boxes,I used 3/4" plywood because two layers of boards would have been too heavy for my wife to lift.For the windows,I bought sliding vinyl ones at a local building supply store.It is insulated with 3 1/2" fiberglass in the ceiling and walls and finished off with 1X6 knotty pine tongue and groove boards---very cozy.More pictures to follow.
...
The building now has stairs leading to the door

...
The roof is covered with 40 year architectural shingles
...
Hi Frank,
I forgot to ask if you noticed the automatic feeder I built from your plans at the bottom right of the picture?

...
One of our hens laying an egg in one of the nesting boxes---we use eastern white pine shavings for bedding

...
The finished interior of my coop---tongue and groove knotty pine

...
Hi Frank,
This is the extra 4x4 crossmember and jack post that I added in the middle of the span for extra load protection in the winter.

...
Here's the roof rafter detail showing the hurricane ties I used to connect the rafters---much stronger than toe-nailing

...
You'll notice that the eave vents are off center.This is due to the placement of the end jackposts that support the ridge beam.I covered the openings for winter.Normally there is heavy duty galvanized steel screening in the openings which allow air flow and keep out varmints like weasels that can decimate a flock in one night.I also sealed the underside of thr eaves for the same reason.

...
Hi Frank,
Thank you for posting my photos on your website. I'm very flattered. My family was here from Texas for the holiday, and my son in law called the chicked coop "A five star hotel for chickens". The chickens agree.
...
Hi Frank,
Here's a photo of the coop early on in it's construction. You can see how I supported the ridge timber from underneath with 4x4s. There's one support under each end of the building, one in the center of the run, and one on it's far end. This picture was taken in April and the leaves hadn't budded yet from the previous winter---soon it will all be covered with snow. Best Regards,

...
