    Can you tell me how many nesting boxes are in this coop? If I wanted to add an extra, could I just make the nesting box go from edge to edge. The chickens will be free range and only in the coop at night.

      Hi Emily,

      This plan has just one nesting box, but you could always alter it to fit your needs better. Good luck!

    Hi there,

    Love your coop. Wondering if there is an interior lip… I would like to use the deep bedding method…

      Hi Lynn,

      Yes, you should be able to use the deep bedding method with this coop.

    Hey Natalie–
    I bought your coop plans and am near finishing. I’m curious why you didn’t put the lower roof panels on and bevel the ends on the top walls 30 degrees and set them on the roof to help water run off, rather than in the coop. Is there a reason that I’m not thinking of? Thanks!

      Hi John,

      It was just a preference in how I built it. But I think this way could definitely work as well.

    Hi. Can I please ask if this coop is suitable for places with cold (up to -10) winters? Thank you.

    • Natalie Dalpias (verified owner)

      Hi Arus,

      I live in Northern Utah, and we often get down to single digit temperatures. I place a heat lamp inside my coop, and I don’t have any problems.

    How much does this cost to make?

    • Natalie Dalpias (verified owner)

      Hi Colton,

      Price depends on location and lumber costs. My best estimate is about $500-$700.
