So when my friend Gina from Lady Goats wrote me saying, Help, Ana, I'm building in the rocks and dirt! She wanted to use cedar, and I thought, what cheaper solution than cedar fence pickets for siding?
Gina is going to add a few fun things to the inside - like a mitersaw cabinet and some door shelves, so stay tuned as we turn this shed into a workshop! It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion.
I would advise to put some kind of liner underneath the shingles, especially if youve got powertools stored in the shed.
I had some looong conversations with the people in the roofing departments in both Lowe's and Home Depot (made sure to talk to a lot of people, because it's hard to get accurate advice from one person that may or may not have done a roof!), and they all mentioned that the type of shingles I used, with the OSB, in my climate wouldn't require the use of another underlayment. Anna, don't have chickens as of now but l have 5 cats, my daughter renting front half of our duplex has 6 cats. Last fall bought 2 - 10 x 10 x 6 ft high dog kennel's for my 18 yr old sheperd to run free in no chain. Just wondering if you have any plans for our cats who needs exercise and my de clawed cat who catn't run loose. I have been looking for something like this to build and put on my back deck for a potting shed.


In year 8 at my high school you have to raise an animal or plant, so I decided to raise chickens for my ‘home project’. This old chook house was demolished after the chickens were gone and when it came time to raise more chickens for my project, my dad and I had to design and build a new chook shed. The idea of this new chook shed was to try to make it easy to manage; we didn’t want to have to put away the chickens every night. As you can see in this photo above, there is a series of perches so that the chickens can go in and out of the shed as they please. This shed design has been very useful for me and my family, not having to let the chickens out in the morning and put them away at night makes keeping chooks a whole lot easier. There are other benefits to this design too; on top of each post there is a piece of metal called an ant-cap. Not only is it good to be free of pellet-stealing mice from a financial perspective, it is good because if you have mice, mice attract snakes and where I live there are a lot of brown snakes around, which for the sake of people, you really don’t want around. We also added an electric fence along the top of the fence and sensor lights to deter foxes when they are walking in the paddocks nearby. This is dug under the ground so that the foxes cannot dig under the fence and is loosely fastened to the posts. The electric fence is on the outside of the fence so that if a fox manages to climb up the fence they will get zapped by the wire at the top.


I would have definitely pre-built everything and assembled it after I got my HOA's approval if I'd have known! If you don't have one, nail one corner of an end board and squeeze the boards together while someone else nails all of 'em. Instead of making a typical chook shed, on the ground with a concrete floor, we decided to make an elevated shed, with a wooden floor, bolted to four large wooden posts that suspended it about 1130mm (4ft) off the ground. It is high enough from the ground that foxes cannot jump up into the shed and the perches are too skinny for a fox to climb up. The fact that the fence is floppy makes it harder for foxes to climb up, so the perches are really a precaution.
Also being elevated makes it easy to sweep out old bedding from the shed into a wheel barrow below, rather than having to shovel it up into one. Sure enough, one night we forgot to put the chickens away, and they were thoroughly enjoyed by some foxes. This means the chickens can always go in and out of the shed, and they put themselves away at night.
