DIY Chicken Coop Construction Part 6 - Finishing the Roof

In this photo of our chicken coop, you will see that all of the roof trusses have now been fastened into place and the front cap board has also been installed.


View from the rear of the chicken coop showing the rear cap board now also in place.  We are now ready to start installing our roof sheeting.  We did ours with more OSB and will cover with shingles.


In this view of the chicken coop you can see a couple of the roof top sheeting boards are now in place.  All we need to do is cut and finish the last pieces and we will be ready to start installing the roof shingles.



This view is from the rear of the chicken coop and all of the roof sheeting is now in place.  We are ready to begin shingling the roof.




In this view, you can see the roof shingles being installed.  We opted to finish this task before the remaining sidewall panels were installed because of inclement weather heading our way and it was easier to keep the water out if the roofing was all in place before the rain arrived.  You easily have finished the side walls before the roof if that was what you wanted to do.

This shows the finished roof. All of the roof trim is also completed in this photo. We built this roof of this chicken coop in the same way we would have done it on our home.  Keeping the rain out of our coop and maintaining a dry environment for our chickens is a must.  Attention to detail here will prevent disappointment and extra work later.
