“Krewe of Coops” Virtual Chicken Coop Tour, Lucky No. 13 — Eight Garden Arks

Coop 1: Frank’s Garden Ark with Pavers, Shoreline, Washington

“I built this with my girlfriend’s dad who is a retired Boeing machinist. It turned out really well, and the directions took a lot of guesswork out of the building process. I have the ark sitting on a base of 12×12 pavers loose-set in sand and gravel to deter raccoons from digging underneath the edge.

Rob and Tansy's Australian Garden Coop chicken coop from metric instructions
Spring is right around the corner. . . in Australia, anyway, where the season starts the first of September. In honor of that, I’m featuring the gorgeous garden and coop of Rob and Tansy K. of Bendigo, Victoria. They used the metric version of our plans to build The Garden Coop to house their chooks, modifying the size somewhat to fit atop an existing brick raised garden bed and to incorporate found and recycled materials.
