now I wasn't planning to do an instructable on this at the time of building, so some steps may be missing, but you will get the general idea. basically this is my homemade chicken coop. I have no wood working skills, and basic tools, my most advanced tools are a table circular saw, and a dremel, I also borrowed a jigsaw from the neighbor. the wood I used came from an old tree house that I took apart, although I did have to buy a few extras to complete the project. now if your pondering the idea of building a chicken coop, my advice to you is to just get stuck in, I looked for ages on the internet for designs I liked, and not finding exactly what worked for me I just said screw it and went outside and started putting it together. I was nervous that I didn't have the skills to do this, but now all is said and done I will say to anyone, just push through that doubt and you will get it done. this is by no means top of the line, top quality workmanship lol, but it serves its purpose.
Step 1: let's begin.
OK, now I'm not gonna give you dimensions, as this will all depend on how many chickens you have, but the total size of mine for my 5 chickens is, 5' x 5' for the inside area, and 10' x 5' for the outside area. total height is about 5-1/2'.
