The Walk-In Design
This design is for a walk-in run that can be connected to just about any coop or even enclose a smaller coop. It features a full-size people door for easy entry. Trellis a vining plant up the side and over the pergola for beauty, aroma, and shade. The module measures about 6'wide x 6'deep x 7-1/2'high with a footprint of 36 feet. Each unit in the Garden Run series is built atop a secure foundation to protect your hens from digging pests and predators. Note: This chicken run is not intended to be your chickens' primary shelter. You will still need to attach a coop or hen house.
All materials are standard and easy to find. Budget about $260 for the Walk-In design.
Tools Needed: Circular saw or miter saw, power drill/driver and a few drill bits, tape measurer, level (helpful for larger configurations), pencil, pair of sawhorses, handsaw (helpful for quick cuts), hammer, combination or speed square, a couple clamps with a 3” capacity, wire/metal snips for 19-gauge wire or heavier, sandpaper or a power sander, paintbrush, drop cloth, ladder, pneumatic stapler with compressor (optional, but helpful for larger configurations)
These detailed plans come as a downloadable 44-page, full-color PDF ebook, written for beginners.
