Mitchell Snyder's coop

Mitchell Snyder's chicken coop combines the look of a modern prefab house with the green beauty of a rooftop garden. Located in Portland, Ore., the coop is big enough for five chickens and is well lit and ventilated. The coop has a large run covered with wire mesh fencing and perfectly complements the 1924 craftsman bungalow behind which it sits.
