I’m putting the finishing touches on our newest chicken coop plans, an option for the many folks who’ve told us they love The Garden Coop walk-in chicken coop design, but want to build something even bigger.
A few things I’ll tell you about it now:
- It is a very spacious walk-in coop, twice the size of The Garden Coop. That means it’ll house up to 16 chickens quite comfortably, and you can modify it or add extra run space to house even more.
- It is a brand-new coop design. You’ll notice a family resemblance with our other chicken coop and run designs, of course, and it’s built using similar construction materials and techniques (so it’ll match nicely).
- Like all our chicken coop and run plans, this one is written for beginner builders and walks you through the entire process. It’s the perfect project to share with a partner or two, given the scope of it.
I started working on this design in earnest about two years ago and have been refining it, building and testing a model coop, and creating the plans for it ever since. Now I’m close, and I can’t wait to show you.
We’ll be unveiling the new design here on the blog soon, so stay tuned!

I have all of the materials needed for the Garden Coop and I bought the Quick Kit too, but I haven’t started to build the Garden Coop yet. Will I be able to use all of the materials and Quick Kit items for building your larger Garden Coop? Thanks.
Some of the materials and hardware do overlap with The Garden Coop. There are a few items in the GC Quick Kit that are not needed for the new design and some other items you’ll have to pick up extra. If you’re okay holding off a week or so, email me after the new design is launched (if you prefer it), and I’ll help you sort everything out.
What is the size of the overall footprint of the new coop?
I promise more details soon, but it’s about 12′ wide x 9′ deep.
That is exciting! Can’t wait to see it, John!
