I have several books on coop building. This is by far my favorite! It has step by step pictures and tells you what supplies you need Plus, the people who build the coops are all regular people who love having chickens (mostly families) I love the designs. Give this book a look. I'm sure you won't be dissapointed
This book is rockin' awesome when it comes to numerous coup ideas complete with building plans and the owners personal stories. Even if you never planned to have chickens of your own...or if it's not legal in your area to raise them lol...you might find inspiration to travel a new "coup" of an adventure, just saying...
Enjoyed the book. There is a helpful list of finished cut dimensions, but no accompanying list of lumber needed to buy for the entire project.
