Build an outdoor child’s playhouse with basic building materials and create a space for your children that they can call their very own.
Capture the playhouse that lives in your child’s imagination and make it a reality. With a little bit of planning, and the proper tools, you can design, build, and decorate a playhouse that will stand up to the wear and tear that your kids will inflict upon it, as well as the weather. Using a few basic building techniques, your child’s playhouse can be fun, functional, and structurally sound.
All the rage! We have cedar to help you build more than a simple cage.
The general rule is 4 square feet of inside space and 10 square feet of run space per standard sized bird, half that for bantams. I’ve seen some people give their birds 2 square feet per bird inside the coop, but those birds are almost never in the coop. Your coop and run sound about right for 4 hens, though if it snows a lot in your area (I don’t know what Utah is like) you may want to build bigger as the hens will be stuck inside a lot. The general rule for nest boxes is 1 for every 3-4 hens in the coop and for roosts 8-12 inches per standard bird and half that for bantams. You already got 8 chicks so if you feel your coop isn’t big enough, make a second (you can connect them through the run) or add on to your current one.
enjoy your chicken adventure

The Annual Flower and Garden show was a sight to behold, not only were the displays amazing, but it was packed! We had several displays with our material in them, and couldn’t be more happy with the end result. Small garden buildings seem to be all the rage. The idea that everyone needs a place to get away too, even if it’s just to the garden, definitely has it’s appeal. Along that line, we are working with a local craftsman to bring in a small cottage to show just how great of a space these cottages can be. Stay tuned!
