combined chicken run - greenhouse
I've searched the net but haven't come across anything quite like what I want to build. I'd like to get feedback on its feasibility and desirability, and design ideas:
A stationary, unheated, wood-frame, walk-in structure, built directly atop the sod, with rigid plastic roof and walls, which would extend out from our existing chicken coop and run. I'm thinking 12 feet long by nine feet wide, with a 3-foot path down the middle, a 3-foot wide bed of greens growing on one side and a 3-foot wide chicken run with bedding on the other. Every year, greens and chickens would switch sides.
This would give the hens a place to run during the winter, and us a place to grow greens during the spring and fall - all but about two months of the year.
Anybody see this before, or something similar? Any suggestions for building materials? Ventilation?
