Modern, Aesthetic Chicken Coop

Modern, Aesthetic Chicken Coop 1 - Bird Feeders & Houses

Here were the goals while building this chicken coop:

  • I wanted to build it once, so going too cheap on materials just to have it rot was not an option.
  • It had to look good and be something I was proud of and NOT something that I wanted to hide from my neighbors.
  • Due to the investment I wanted it to ‘give back’ besides providing shelter for my chickens.  Creating a garden roof on the coop was my solution to making it multi-functional and ‘giving back’ in the form of garden produce.
  • Halfway into the design, I realized that there was a void in the chicken coop market of modern looking chicken coops.  So I adjusted my design to be modular so construction time was faster and could be a somewhat assembly line.  It could also adapt to the many funky yard spaces that everyone has.  

Eggs easily collected through the side hatch.

  1. What did you use to keep the roof from rotting? I want to build for a single mom of 3 and this would be perfect!

  2. this is the cutest coop I have seen! I’ve sent to my friends with chickens but I’m also thinking how neat it would be for our feral kitties at our sanctuary!
