Welcome to Coops and Sheds

We build or help you to build chicken coops for your feathered friends.

We design structures which can be disassembled and moved by 2 strong people. Emphasis is on ease of cleaning and compact design.

Here is our latest design. New features: picture window facing south for winter warmth, venting front and back under roof for summer cooling, metal roofing for ease of disassembly and durability. We also added a fenced run behind (not shown) with a translucent roof over part of it. This coop has 5 nesting boxes and room for about 16 chickens to roost. Floor area is better for about 12 on wintry days when they don’t want to go out.

My favorite multi-colored coop. Larger capacity of 30 square feet, full back clean-out door (red), access on both ends for gathering eggs and adding feed or water.

This coop was built at a local apple orchard. Inside there’s an area for laying boxes and roosts, also a storage area for grain and tools.
