Alla, Kathleen, Claudia

My original scheme inveolved a large roosting area which could be seperated from a smaller nesting area. The nesting boxes are small enough to be transported in one piece, while the roosting area needs to fold or come apart for transportation. These ideas are still present in the coop that Alla, Claudia, and I created by merging our schemes together.

After Friday's review it is necessary for us to rethink our material choices. We originally clad the coop in wood and corrugated plastic, but then found a lighter PVC foam (Komatex), and Coroplast twin wall sheeting. While these materials are lighter, and a little more unusual, they are not good for the environment.
