Last year I designed a cute little chicken coop.
When I was cruising around the internet, I ran across this cute shed at the Family Handyman website.
I'd also like to put up a dividing wall down the center so it will be half-shed, half-chicken coop. Then we'll put a door on each end, or one on the end and one on the interior wall; I'm not sure of the details yet. It's probably going to depend on what salvage we find for this project.
I got motivated to start a sketchup file Saturday night when Jeff was off at game night, and then I continued to work on it on Sunday; it's hard to stop halfway. The file still needs some work, but this is basically what I was thinking.
We're planning to use leftover siding and shingles and whatever salvage we have at home and we'll scrounge for the rest. Though, we might have to call in some help for the framing; it's probably too complicated given our lack of experience.
One of the fun things about using Sketchup is the opportunity to play with different views.
The Family Handyman photo is adorable! I can absolutely see it divided to allow for chickens on one side and storage on the other. All of the FHM plans that I have used are very easy to follow, with cut lists and everything, that should give you a good starting point to incorporate your salvage items.ReplyDelete
You know how impressed I am that you mastered SketchUp...ReplyDelete
Thanks! Mastered is definitely a stretch, but I am getting better at "building" stuff in it.Delete
