There was no written plan. I designed it myself. Here are some photos during the build which may help you. The one thing I would do different is to attach nesting boxes to access from the back. Leaning into the front of the house through the windows makes it tough to collect the eggs.

This cute little house has wheels on it, so it can be pulled along with the chicken run to fertilize different parts of the yard and keep the chicken run fresh and clean.
Seek out attractive digs. The look and feel of your coop can be incredibly important in keeping the peace with neighbors. You don't need to spend a fortune on a designer coop if you don't want to, but do pay attention to how it will fit in with other structures in your neighborhood. We found a low-profile A-frame chicken coop on Craigslist and with a fresh lick of paint ended up with a cute coop on a budget.See more about home chicken coopsMore chicken keeping resources:Backyard Chickens has informative forums and resource articles.My Pet Chicken has day-old chicks (three-chick minimum order), coops and supplies.Murray McMurray is a well-respected hatchery. The minimum chick order is 25, so you might want to go in with a few friends.
A triangular design works well for this adjustment period as well. If you will be raising new chicks each year, you might want to consider this design.

This awesome. I already have the A-frame and never thought of adding a little coop on one end. Perfect for putting my new peeps out in once it gets warm enough, until they get big enough to mix in with flock of adult birds.

Other chicken-keeping perks include: free, organic pest control (they love slugs!), kitchen waste removal (see a list of what they will eat here) and wonderful fertilizer for your garden from composted poop. Seek out attractive digs. The look and feel of your coop can be incredibly important in keeping the peace with neighbors. You don't need to spend a fortune on a designer coop if you don't want to, but do pay attention to how it will fit in with other structures in your neighborhood.
