One of the most popular woodworking projects that people are constantly searching for are the plans for building a chicken coop. You might be thinking that this is a really difficult task to complete, but the truth is that as long as you have quality instructions, it’s just the matter of carefully following the steps.
Apart for saving money on buying a brand-new coop, you will also gain priceless woodworking experience, which will probably come handy in the future. Building a chicken coop is quite fun as well, especially if you are working with a friend or a relative. I would actually recommend not doing this alone, because it’s always good to have someone to help you out, if you don’t understand anything.
Before I go any further regarding the plans to build a chicken coop, I need to know, if you have chosen the correct size and location for your coop? If not, then think about how many chickens you are going to keep and a safe place in your backyard, where the coop will be secure from the predators and unpredictable weather.
Another thing to keep in mind is the cleaning of the coop. Make sure that your chicken are always in a clean and ventilated environment. That way they will be healthy and regularly produce fresh eggs for your home. Sliding windows are a common feature that people use on their coops to make it easier to ventilate the inside.
All this stuff may sound overwhelming to you now, but I can reassure you that there’s nothing complicated. It’s all about what kind of plans for building a chicken coop you are using. The majority of them that I came across are too “techy” and therefore useless for beginners. However, a friend of mine, Bill Keene has got a chicken coop plans guide called “Building A Chicken Coop“, which is absolutely awesome. You just have to check it out.
