Chicken coop, gate and fence - case study

Chicken coup, custom built gate and fencing

This week we have been building a custom chicken coop with custom build gate and a sturdy back garden fence. Looking after rescue chickens, Ian and Karen wanted a nice area for them to live. It needed to give them room to scratch around but also stop them causing havoc in the garden.

After a sending over some potential designs with prices for each, we agreed on a plan and got to work. The work took 2 days to complete and Ian and Karen have both said they were delighted with the result.

What we did

To build the chicken coop, 4 sturdy wooden supports were set into the ground with cement. The perimeter was then enclosed with steel chicken wire. A custom sized, sturdy gate was constructed from treated timber and fitted with hinges and a latch for easy access.

The fence at the rear of the garden was a mishmash of old walls and pieces of fence. We demolished all of this, clearing the way for a new fence. We installed a classic slatted fence with concrete posts and base plates. These fences are easy to install and last up to 15 years. They are a great option for keeping the cost down whilst having something that looks great.
