Trees 2 Treasures chicken coop

by Dan Orasi
(Meridian)





I'm a woodworker, mostly furniture and custom cabinets. My girlfriend had been bugging me for months to build her a chicken coop. That's how I came across these plans.

What a fun project, I loved every minute of it. Such a nice change from everything having to be perfect. I even fired up the cnc and carved some decorations and a hen shaped window.

I did a couple of small changes. I raised the floor by one foot and extended the roof by six foot. This gave the ladies a little more running room when in the pen.

However raising the height by a foot wasn't the smartest, I hit my head a few times during the build. lol

Thank you so much for the great plans.
Sincerely,
Dan Orasi

Trees 2 Treasures chicken coop NEW
by: Dan

Quick update on chicken coop. Very Happy with the Epoxy floor. Cleans up super easy. Cleaning coop once a week this time of the year with the hens out most of the day.
I found that a plastic snow rake to be the best cleaning tool. It works amazing takes less than ten minutes to pull out pine shavings and replace with new.

Was wondering if we could see more pictures, and I was wondering how the chickens took to that style of flooring? Thanks, Rexx ~Oklahoma

epoxy paint NEW
by: Anonymous

Pitch was 10/12. I didn't prime the floor at all. Seems to be holding up fine. I used rough cut lumber for the floor so I did use painters caulk on the seams before the epoxy paint.

Can I ask what pitch you used for the roof, and what you primed the floor with before coating with the epoxy?

I love that you used the garage floor paint for the floor and nesting boxes. Very easy clean up. Love the decorative art work as well :)
