Hello faithful readers. Matt and I have been busy putting the finishing touches on our modern log cabin chicken coop. It features interesting joinery, a sliding barn door, and all the features you have come to expect from a Just Fine chicken coop: private nesting box, easy egg retrieval, removable roosting bars (for cleaning), redwood along the base (resists rot without heavy chemicals), good ventilation, skylight, protection from predators and that heavy Bay Area weather, and of course, FUNKY STYLE.
Building up the walls, one "log" at a time:
Before roof and paint (please notice that handsome barn door):
That little sliding red door on the left is where you will pick up your freshly-laid eggs.
Come check us out at the Crucible's Gifty craft faire this weekend in Oakland, Friday 7-10pm ($10) and Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm (free). Our coop will be on display and for sale. Over the next year we will be designing and building another 10 custom coops, so if you want to rap about getting one of these beauties in your backyard bring a pencil and paper.
