7 ft Tall Barn Chicken Coop Door Plans

This step by step diy project is about 7 ft tall barn chicken coop roof plans. This is PART 4 of the chicken coop project, where I show you how to build the front door and the back. In addition, I show you how to attach the decorative trims, so you can make the coop pretty. Make sure you secure everything with attention and make adjustments to my plans, if necessary. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a 7′ barn chicken coop  door plans

Back door plans

Back door plans

First of all, you need to build the back door for the chicken coop. Use T1-11 siding and 1×4 lumber for the frame. Attach the trims to the siding panel and use glue and 1 1/4″ screws to assemble the door tightly. Fit 1×4 lumber around the opening and insert 2″ nails. Use hinges and a latch to secure the door into place tightly.

Front wall door

Use T1-11 siding for the door panels and 1×4 lumber for the door frame. Lay the panels on a level surface and then attach the trims. Leave no gaps between the components, drill pilot holes and insert 1 1/4″ screws. Make sure the edges are flush, otherwise the doors won’t fit into place properly. Check if the corners are square.
