So, I have been begging (BEGGING) for my husband to let me add four chickens to our family. Apparently, the stipulation is that I must build the coop. I think that this is his way to see if I really want it, or to put off the inevitable because he knows that power tools and I aren't great pals. Either way, I have been scheming and "planning" how I would set up a home for the chickens. I've discovered that I gravitate towards two ideas.
#1 The Green Roof: What I love about these two designs is the multipurpose function of the coop. It's a coop and a little garden, plus the roof can provide insulation and absorb rainwater.
