Project by Karen in Suffolk, england

I found your plans and decided to use them for my new chicken house, as they seemed so simple. I changed the width and used old scrap wood for most of the build, mainly an old shed and some fencing I had sitting around. The only thing I bought new, was the roofing and screws, hinges and paint.

I lined the floor and nest boxes with a rubbery plastic just to protect it a little (this was also something I had lying around) so this house has only cost about £80 to make, plus my time.

It came out brilliantly and was really easy to follow, really pleased with the finished result and my girls seem happy with their new pad.

Thank you for the free plans you provide.
