I was thrilled when we finally decided on how to build our first coop. All the coops and kits didn’t quite fit the vision of what I wanted. I dreamed of a coop I could walk into, like I remembered doing as a child. My childhood chicken houses were rustic, simple, rudimentary, but they were familiar, so the designs I saw, which were in most instances a box you could reach into, but not walk into, just didn’t fit the vision.
We decided to look at sheds, and fortunately for us, we found an 8×10 repossessed shed at Tuff Shed in Brandon. It was perfect.
I was so excited when the delivery day came. My dream of a few chickens was coming to pass.
October 17 2016 we had found our shed conversion. October 21 2016 it arrived.
I got to work planning, sketching and dreaming. Our adventure had begun.

Almost ready for the chickens to arrive.
