House of the Week

Believe it or not this is a chicken coop. This little structure is fondly referred to as the Chateau du Poulet by the neighbors. When the owner of the property decided to build a new home for her chickens, she wanted it to reflect the architecture of the main tudor style house. This was designed and built by the owner. She told me she wanted all her outbuildings to be beautiful, after all, they are a part of the scenic views from this rural home.

I find it interesting that this little structure is architecturally more interesting than most of the houses being built. Stay tuned for next weeks building, the doghouse.
