Tasha & Nathan in the Kootenay/Okanagan Mountains of British Columbia have created a modern day homestead. They have a menagerie of well loved and well cared for animals. Their “just-about-finished” cedar chicken coop is a sturdy post and beam structure with unique & interesting cordwood log ends. The many shelves that will act as roosts.
The chickens certainly look happy in their almost finished “digs.” The Western Red Cedar framework is braced and counter-braced and ready for the cordwood infill. Nathan did the milling and provided the muscle/carpentry for the framing. The cedar corner posts on this shed are simply jaw dropping, gorgeous pieces of wood. Note how the tree nestles right up to the structure. Cedar often has center rot and this is a cool way to make it an egress for their fowl-feathered friends. Tasha/Nathan and their crew put in many delightful accoutrements. Bottle ends with little rubber chicks inside… Hearts, shelves and roosts are all part of the master plan. A well designed and well built structure: the living roof, doors and windows will be added as time permits and as the flock grows.
