Chicken coop construction

Recently we decided we would get some chickens for our backyard. The first thing we realized that we would need was a chicken coop that would fit up to 5 chickens in it comfortably. After spending a few hours researching the best options for coops and talking to friends with chickens, we bought this chicken coop kit from the internet for a cheap price.
Afternoon One:
We picked up the chicken coop in pieces and spent the afternoon assembling all the pieces together.
Afternoon Two:
Once all the pieces were together, it was time to paint the coop. We plan to roof our chicken area, but it will still need exterior paint. 
 
I chose a medium grey paint on the inside and outside of the coop, as I don’t want to have to scrub it down every time its gets dirty.  

 The roof was painted a darker shade of grey.
Afternoon Three:
I let the paint dry completely before we took the new coop outside to its new location. Now we are starting to build the chicken area!
 
More to come soon.
