Very helpful. There were several things in it that I was glad to learn before we started building, being a novice at this. Our coop still isn't finished, but we know what to do and are glad to have this book to refer to when needed.

Nice clear instructions and how to build a chook house, and why things are done as they are. If you know nothing about building really good information on how to build a basic hen coop.

The book only gives six detailed plans for chicken coops, however, it's possible to put pieces of each design together for a different coop. Still, more options or pictures of variations on the six plans would have been a nice touch.

It didn't include a design in the size I want, but it has very detailed instructions for building coops.
