Chicken Coop

We're getting chickens in a few weeks (for egg laying purposes), so my husband built a coop. It'll be several weeks before they're ready to use it but we wanted it to be ready when the time comes.
The Coop! Now all we need are the chickens!

    Carol, can you advise as to the dimensions? This coop is awesome, and we are getting ready for chickens too, but are still looking at coops. Did you husband have plans or was this free form building? Thanks so much!

    How much did this cost?? {estimate}

    Tyra, I'm sorry for the late reply. I had to ask my husband. This wasn't an inexpensive, pallet type coop. He used quality materials, so the cost was about $350. This was much less than the coops for sale online and he does quality work. He's since built another coop of another design and they're both awesome! Well worth the cost.
