The Garden Loft chicken coop plans show you how to build a spacious, secure walk-in coop and run to house your growing backyard flock. This is the largest DIY walk-in chicken coop design offered, suitable for up to 16 hens -- or add run space for even more! Features include:
Secure all around from predators and pests
Ample ventilation and light
Full-sized people door and egg collection door on the side
- Full-width, waist-high henhouse
Four nest boxes, generous roosting space, and room to add storage or extra features
Outer dimensions: 11-1/2'wide x 9'deep x 8-1/2'high
Henhouse: 34-1/2 square feet (3.2 square meters)
- Integrated enclosed/covered run: 102 square feet (9-1/2 square meters)
These detailed plans come as a downloadable 89-page, full-color PDF ebook, written for beginners (though some prior DIY experience is a plus, given the size of the project). Tools and materials, measurements, cuts, techniques -- everything is spelled out with step-by-step instructions, illustrations, pictures, and tips. Both U.S. (feet/inches) and metric (mm) measurements are included. And as with all of our plans, you get email support from the designer should you need it.
Circular saw, power drill/driver, tape measure, level, sawhorses, handsaw, hammer, pliers, speed square, clamps, metal snips, shovel, bow rake, step ladder, paint brush, rubber mallet, personal protective gear, and a pneumatic stapler (optional, for faster work). Materials Cost
All materials are standard and easy to find. Budget around $1200-$1500 pre-tax.
