This quirky Fourpenny Workshop commission was hatched last summer, after Chris created an ingenious drawing which captured our client's imagination and promised to impress their feathered friends (who were in need of a little egg-laying encouragement).
The design is one which makes us smile (which is always a good start) and it certainly fulfils all the exacting requirements of a modern chicken-about-town, including a penthouse suite (plenty of roosting and nest box space), inbuilt air-conditioning (by way of a simple through-ventilation system) and a state-of-the-art security system (pull handle and shutter door).
Our specially designed, Chicken Coop was built from cedar wood, cut and supplied by our good friend Eddie at the Sustainable Saw Co. Cedar is one of our favourites because as well as smelling good, it's very durable and has naturally occurring properties which help to protect it from insect attack and rot.
We made the Chicken Coop as manoeuvrable as possible too by incorporating a set of reclaimed cast iron wheels. This means it can easily be moved to greener pastures as and when required.
If your chickens could do with something similarly spacious and stylish to live in, why not drop us a line?
