Coopus Maximus: Completed!

January 26th, 2011

After making a few last-minute tweaks last week, the crazy geometric Coopus Maximus chicken coop is now complete! The coop, designed by Erick and Kerron and inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s geometric designs, was a big hit at our recent open house and will likely end up at a public venue in downtown Windsor. This coop in particular was an interesting construction feat, as much of its realization happened in a sort of fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants fashion, figuring out joinery and angles as we went, designing and building simultaneously. A few final pictures are below, and congrats to Erick, Kerron, Cameron, and Alexia for finishing such a beautiful home for some lucky chickens!
