Nathan LottWelcome to Part 3 of our discussion on building chicken coops! If you're joining us for the first time, feel free to check out the previous articles:

Part 1: Size
Part 2: Location

Today, we're gonna be talking about:

Orientation.

Hopefully you already know how big to build your coop. And you should also have a nice location picked out. But what about the orientation? Where are you gonna put the door(s)? The nest boxes? The windows? (If any). Which direction will it all be facing? You might not have given it much thought, but orientation makes a big difference!



Before we begin though, let's take a step back for a moment.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own coop – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
