Pallet Hen House Chicken Coop in Under 3 Mins. Poulailler Palette. Gallinero Paleta En 3 Minutos

About: I am an escapee from modern life, now living by the sea in a forest garden in France. After over 20 years industrial experience, I quit my managerial position to study for a degree in Engineering. That done ...

Stanislas has something to crow about when he and his friends finally get their hen house after months of rain. We made this hen house at Christmas but have been waiting for a few fine days to put it up. Films shows the intense interest our flock have in what goes on in the garden!

    This project is already on here in two films but for step-by-step details please go to

    - where there are four articles which are linked and will give you a complete breakdown with photographs and written instructions. If at any point you need further clarification please get back to me either on the blog or here. We have three of these houses in our garden and are about to make a quarter size one for a friend - so will post that in the near future. All the very best from sunny Normandie, Andy

    Hi, Thanks for the comment! I already
    have two films on Instructables showing the design, construction and
    assembly of this hen house. Sue has just begun to set up a board with
    all our projects on so if you follow this link you will find these two
    Hen House films on the top right and left

    You can also find the Hen House explained over several blogposts starting with this one:

    plus I will be giving everyone who follows my blog free access to my
    design drawings I am in the process of transferring to LibreCad.

    All the best, Organikmechanic aka Andy
