Tim vonHolten (Flickr user vonDoom) built himself a sturdy and stylish chicken coop with a little help from his friends. The coop features a corrugated aluminum roof that extends out over the coop’s frontage, creating a sheltered space where (it would appear) the chickens can keep dry while shooting the breeze and kicking back a few wobbly-pops.

Old and busted: Urban Cowboy. New hotness: Urban Chicken Farmer! Architect Mitchell Snyder and architectural designer Shelley Martin designed and built this great looking and environmentally-friendly chicken coop after modeling the concept in Google SketchUp… how modern is that?

The coop (featured in Dwell) was built using reclaimed cedar wood over a frame constructed with sturdy two-by-fours. Insulated against Portland’s damp and oft-chilly winter weather, the coop features upper windows to provide adjusted ventilation and a lower access hatch to facilitate egg collection. The finishing touch was a living green roof seeded with native plant species.

Have you seen this chicken coop? Because it is awesome! We featured the Nogg Chicken Coop in our Creative Chicken Coops retrospective several years ago but it deserves an encore presentation. Ideal for space-challenged yards, the ingeniously egg-shaped Nogg Chicken Coop from ChickenCribs has room inside for up to 4 chickens and is easily assembled, dissembled and reassembled for convenience and portability.
