You may save a heap of time and money by using the Net to help you build a DIY chicken pen. Actually the hardest part is finding the right chicken pen building plans for your unique wants. This article explains the different options that you have, and helps you get to step one in this very practical woodworking project.
Small Vs Huge Chicken Pens
If you’re only planning on breeding a touch of chickens, there are two main choices of chicken coops: the a-frame, and the chicken ark. Both share an exceedingly similar frame, but finish up looking quite different. The biggest difference is that the chicken ark uses 2 storeys, whereas the easy a-frame is only one.
As far as enormous chicken coops go, there are three options: the box-shaped coop, the hen house, and the premium chicken barn. The box-shaped coop is a bit smaller than the other 2, and stands quite tall and narrow. It’s great if you’ve only got a little yard. The hen house and chicken barn are huge, and both utilize a big attached chicken run. They are for the very significant chicken breeder.
Picking the Best Wood
All of the previously discussed chicken pens are built generally from wood. Treated pine is the cheapest and quickest to work with. However, if you want to go for something all natural, and costlier, you can screw up with naturally rot resistant cedar.
Other building materials include chicken wire, plywood, chipboard, and metal pickets. Of course, the entire materials list will be included with whatever chicken pen building plans you eventually come to a decision to go with.
Whereabout to find Construction Plans
This work is focused on internet-based plans. However, if you do not trust the internet, you’ll potentially be ready to find prime quality chicken coop plans in your local appliance store, or Waters-tone’s.
Online plans generally come in packages of multiple designs. This is nice if you do not really wish to make a style call straight away. You’ll be in a position to go over each schematic, and choose which is best for your requirements.

Presentation: Phil Bruch, P.Eng., will be presenting about the various slope stability issues experienced along the east bank of the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatoon. Presentation Summary: Numerous slope instabilities (landslides) have occurred along the east bank of the South Saskatchewan River within the City of Saskatoon. This presentation will outline the locations of significant landslides in Saskatoon and discuss the various failure mechanisms for the landslides. Case histories of several recent landslides along Saskatchewan Crescent will be reviewed. Speaker Biography: Phil Bruch is a Principal and Senior Geotechnical Engineer with Golder Associates’ Saskatoon office. He has 30 years of experience, and has been involved with projects in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, the Northwest Territories, Alaska, Mongolia and Israel. A significant portion of Phil Bruch's project experience has involved slope stability issues. This includes stability analyses of both natural and constructed slopes, including slope stabilization and landslide mitigation. These projects have included site characterization, field investigation, installation of various instrumentation (piezometers, inclinometers, and settlement monitoring), design, construction, and decommissioning. He was also involved in the development of a framework to evaluate slope stability conditions along the South Saskatchewan River through the City of Saskatoon. Follow-up work to this has included investigation of several landslides in the City, including the design and implementation of remedial measures.
