Build a Movable Chicken Coop

Step 4
4. Lay out the end walls. The end walls (D) are 3/8-inch plywood. I laid out a roofline as follows. The height of the panel is 3 1/2 feet and the start of the pitch is at 2 1/2 feet, meaning the taper rises 1 foot over a 2-foot-wide span, sometimes described as a 6:12 pitch. I used a framing square to lay out a nice wide door (30 inches by 27 inches) to make clean-out a snap, and I added a small 11-inch-by-11-inch window below the gable for some extra ventilation.
