DIY Chicken Coop Construction Part 9 - Trim Work

This step is totally up to you but for aesthetic reasons we wanted to trim out our chicken coop to give it a professional finished look. The chickens honestly won't care and if you are building this on the back 40 somewhere, it may not be needed.  We used 1 x 4 pine lumber for this part of our project.  We measured, cut, and pre-painted all of our trim which you can see drying in this photo.

We installed the trim on all of the corners of our chicken coop with the aid of a ladder.  How you go about trimming out your chicken coop is entirely up to you and you can add more or less trim as desired so suit your tastes.  The trim out our house and garage was white so we stayed with white for the chicken coop since it is located fairly near our garage.





In this photo you can see that we have the back corners trimmed and we have also trimmed out the window at this point.



Another view of the coop from the front side showing the trim we have installed at this point.




A view of the backside of the chicken coop with the nest box also trimmed out now.




A view from the front of the chicken coop with the main door frame and the chicken access door opening with the trim in place.  I was very happy that we took the time to do the extra trim work because this did a very nice job in improving the overall "look" of the chicken coop which we felt was important to our project.  Next stop..our main door construction!
