The Ultimate Chicken Coop
This just might be the ultimate chicken coop. From the cute design to the pure functionality of it all, we think you’ll love what these urban dwellers from California have done.
“If my husband had his way, we’d live on a farm,” says Heather Bullard, whose career as a photo stylist instead requires close proximity to Los Angeles.
So she and her agriculture-obsessed spouse, Jim, compromised by constructing a chicken coop.
Since the Bullards’ Riverside, California, backyard barely covers a quarter acre, looks mattered as much as function.
Together, the two designed a Cape Cod–inspired structure that’s prettier than many human dwellings—and built it themselves for $1,600, using stock building materials and hardware from Home Depot.
