John B. sent in this shot of his Garden Coop walk-in chicken coop in Portland, Oregon, modified to be not quite as tall as the original design:

How to reduce the height of The Garden Coop chicken coop.

John wrote: “We dropped it a foot so that it didn’t intrude on our neighbor’s sightlines, and it seemed to sit in the space better. We took the foot off the bottom instead of scaling it down evenly, that way the henhouse remained the same height.”

Thanks to John for sharing a picture of his chicken coop and for his tip about how to reduce the height. If you dig what he’s done, or have other ideas about building a shorter coop, leave a comment below.

    Looks more stable and somehow sturdier in the shortened configuration. I like it! Thanks for sharing.
