Herb Garden Coop (Saint Paul, MN)

This customer was nice enough to send us some photos and comments after they completed building their Herb Garden Coop from our $34.95 DIY plans. After a few emails back and forth, we are excited to hear how much fun they are having with their new backyard project.

This is what they mentioned about the plans:

  • The detail was great -- cut list, specs, drawings etc.
  • We painted before and during the process, which worked fine and was probably a lot easier than doing it at the end.
  • We added a roost bar in the coop.
  • We calked a lot given how frigid it is here, so there was less wind whipping through the cracks.
  • The open floor works great, "stuff" falls through and is easy to rake out.
  • We added a 1 x 4 across the front wire wall and mounted a feeder there.
  • We will probably put plexiglass on the inside of the red door for the winter.
  • The neighbors LOVE seeing the coop over our fence from their upstairs.
  • The herb garden is awesome.
  • The design is a great use of space in our small, urban backyard and the herbs are protected from the chickens.
