I struggled for a long time with the design. I wanted a coop that wouldn't look out of place next to our 1920s Craftsman-type home, and I eventually sketched out my idea.
Tearing down and removing the old gazebo was a big job, and over the course of several weekends and evenings after work, I built my new backyard coop, re-using at least some of the old one. The hens are now settled in, and the rabbits are content underneath the coop. I still have a larger hutch for finishing the rabbits. A large feeder and watering can are inside, and the nesting box is accessible from the outside, making them close to maintenance-free.
