In the coming weeks we’ll be picking up our first flock of chickens. In this video we start the process of building their new home – clearing the perfect spot, setting out the foundations and building the majority of the underlying framing for the hen house and chicken run.
In subsequent parts of this series we will install predator proofing, a roof, doors, windows, roosting bars, nest boxes and clad the whole house to give it structure and a nice rustic charm.
If you’re planning a chicken coop build at some point in the future, a full write up of this project (including our design process and 3D sketchup model) will be available to members inside our CLUB. Here you’ll find a whole load of project plans for makers, doers and growers and an active community of practical, creative people from all over the world.
