So ... I'm a bit of a dreamer. Plain and simple. I spend a lot of time (too much time, probably) dreaming up my next big project, whether it's a chicken coop, a barn, a playhouse, whatever. I spend a lot of time just daydreaming about the details, and because of that, I've got a pretty vivid mental picture of how things should look on our little homestead.



Now, the purpose of a chicken coop is to keep the chickens safe and comfortable, and if it doesn't fulfill that purpose, it doesn't belong on my homestead. But at the same time, I also want the chicken coop to look nice. I mean, if I'm gonna be heading out there, day in and day out, I want to like what I see!

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own chicken 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 :)
