With the unfailing know-how and assistance of friends, our coop was finally completed to my Husband's specifications. We had decided to build an ark (or tractor) style coop for the hens as we felt this design was best suited for our needs in the garden. We wanted something secure, but mobile. The intention behind this design was to eliminate grass and weeds, and the girls were ultimately successful in this feat! One side of the coop opens to the run where food and water are kept, and the opposite-or egg door, opens to the nesting box.
The Tiny Green Cottage is our 859 square foot home located in Portland, Oregon. Since 2006, we have endeavored to transform our once barren 5,000 square foot lot into an organic edible landscape and heirloom garden styled in the English tradition.
