All About The 4X6 Chicken Coop

A cheerful charm surrounds this 4’x6′ Chicken Coop. While the design is simple, the attention to detail is what brings this coop to life. The barn sash windows shine light onto the five nesting boxes inside, letting your hens know it’s time to start the day. When you want to let your flock out to forage around your yard, you can open either the main door, or just pop open the cute little chicken run door, which flips down into a ramp.

Floorless by design, access to the ground gives your chickens an opportunity to scratch and dig for tasty bugs while they hang out in their coop. As the smallest of our chicken coops, this model is a favorite of urban farmers and backyard chicken keepers. You’ll love waking up to clucking hens and fresh eggs every morning, and your chickens will be happy in their coop which keeps them warm, dry, and safe from any wild critters.

What is a Pre-Cut Kit? What is included in this package?

The Pre-Cut lumber package has all the framing members cut and ready for assembly. It includes siding, roofing, pre-dimensioned trim, and fastening hardware. Many designs also include windows and doors. The floor system, walls and rafters have all been cut, color-coded and part numbered. The detailed cut list coincides with the color-coded exploded view. The head scratching has been removed, the headaches of finding the correct angles and the aggravation of starting from scratch has all been simplified. The kit is geared to a do-it-yourself homeowner with beginner-to-beginner knowledge of carpentry.

Should I buy a Pre-Cut Kit or Fully Assembled Building?

We design our kits to be organized and easy to understand. If you have basic carpentry skills and are looking to save money, a kit is a great idea for you. We ship our kits  all across the continental USA and part of Canada.

If you live within our Northeast delivery area, you are able to purchase many of our buildings Fully Assembled. You’ll save time and have the peace of mind that your cottage is being built by expert craftsmen.

What is a Complete Shell and What Comes With It?

A complete shell is an uninsulated building. As a kit, it includes everything required to assemble the building including hardware, precut framing, siding and roofing as well as doors and windows. Hardware, millwork sheathing and DIY plans have been enclosed. Each piece is color coded and part numbered. The exact itemization of what is inserted can be found on the specifications tab of the website for each product page design.

What is the difference between a 3-Season and 4-Season Insulation package?

3-Season –A three-season kit prepares the building for interior finishing. It includes the complete shell plus vapor barrier, solid roof sheathing and insulated floor system. A three season building seals the structure from humidity and moisture protecting from the environment, insects and rodents.
