The ModernCoop chicken house uses recycled cedar, metal or fiberglass roves to create an ultra cool retro-looking 50’s trailer design.
Designed to provide a deluxe home for your backyard flock, the innovative and sustainable design comes from Portland-based architecture firm Wright Design Office.The coops have a water supply port and a pest-protected feeding section, roosting box, egg access hatch and perch level viewing windows. A ladder is used to access the interior, and being raised off the ground helps provide extra vermin and predator protection.
The chicken coop sits in a chicken run which is approximately 24" wide x 48" long x 42" high (60cms x 120cms x 107cms) including the ladder. Additional chicken coops can be added lengthwise or side-by-side to increase the chicken run area. The chicken house can be permanent or made as a mobile coop to allow the hens to do their aerating and fertilizing of the soil.
A fully constructed ModernCoop costs around US$790 (€607), with the run costing US$100 (€77) or the plans can be purchased for US$125 (€96).
