Some books leave you guessing about why the author chose that particular name for their book, but with this book the title literally spells out what you will find in Mr. Wolpe and Mr. McElroy’s book. ‘Reinventing the Chicken Coop 14 Original Designs with Step-by-Step Building Instructions’ by Matthew Wolpe and Kevin McElroy is a wonderfully detailed book on building unique housing for chickens. They go above and beyond just giving the reader ideas. They give the reasoning behind the idea and step-by-step instructions with measurements, possible supplies, and tools needed.
You will find included with each design, color photos of the finished coop, detailed instructions to build them, suggested supplies, ideas of other materials you could use instead, and drawings/illustrations showing each step.
Additionally, they not only encourage the reader to try their designs for him or her self, but assure you that the building process isn’t difficult. They even go so far as to encourage their readers to be creative and maybe come up with unique designs too.
I am glad to have come across ‘Reinventing the Chicken Coop’ and might actually try my hand at one or more of the designs myself. If you get the opportunity to read this book and have any thoughts of building a coop for your own place or someone else, this is a great resource to have on hand. Look for it starting December 12, 2012.
