Building a Chicken Coop ? Construction Terms

Are you planning on building a chicken coop but get confused on some of the terminology? I want to share these basic terms you might want to know and what they mean to you when you’re building a chicken coop.

Truss

A truss on any structure is at the top of the roof a frame. The truss when building a chicken coop will also be located at the top of your roof. The truss can be pre-fabricated or built in place the trusses add stability and shape to your roof.

Studs

A stud is a single piece of lumber that is used for walls or any other single piece of framing lumber material placed in a vertical position for constructing your coop.

Corner Posts

The corner post for building a chicken coop are 4″x 4″ posts set onto a concrete footing and secured with a base post saddle strap.

Concrete Footing

Your footings are very important for strength and to allow for the fencing to keep predators out. You can dig corner post footings 8″ diameter and 12″ in depth for your base post straps. The alternative option is to dig a 4″ wide by 6″ deep continuous footing at the perimeter of the coop.

Concrete Mixture

Your concrete footings are a mixture of sand, rock, and Portland cement. The mixture formula is 3 heaping shovels of sand 2 heaping shovels of rock and 1 heaping shovel of type 2 Portland cement Next, add water and mix to a thick consistency, being sure to make it not too dry and not too wet. The base post saddles should be set as soon as the concrete mixture can support the weight of the base post saddles.

Base Post Saddle Straps

As mentioned with the corner post installation, when building a chicken coop you will need to secure your post at the bottom of the posts with a Simpson base post saddle strap. These come in different sizes depending on the dimension of your post. The size you will most likely be using will be a 4″ saddle for the post and a 6″ embedding.

Simpson Strap and Plate Fasteners

When you’re building a chicken coop, fasteners become very useful. They come in various sizes and are used for multiple installation phases of your project. Some of the fasteners you will need are: 90 deg. Stud fasteners, joist hangers corner plate fasteners, and flat plat fasteners to connect at a butt end of two studs or sheathing.

Standard Fastener

A standard fastener is typically galvanized screws or galvanized nails. Both screws and nails are manufactured in different sizes and lengths. Use the appropriate size and length of fastener to match the lumber you are using.

Tools

The tools you will be using are: Framing hammer, finish hammer, hand saw, coping saw, power circular saw, ½” or 3/8″ drill driver, Standard screw bit and Philip head bit, table saw, chop saw, pencil, tape measure, square, 2 ft. level.

When you’re building a chicken coop and ordering materials, these terms should help you to communicate with your hardware and lumber supplier. Now that you know what all these terms means you will have an easier time creating your chicken ranch, big or small.

Building and Construction Applications

Applications of aluminum are structural, amounting to roughly 6 billion lb peryear, or about a quarter of all aluminum produced in the U.S. annually.Structural applications for aluminum can be further divided into aerospaceand nonaerospace applications. Aerospace applications tend to use specializedalloys, such as aluminum-lithium alloys used for the space shuttle’s externalfuel tanks, and most (but not all) 2xxx and 7xxx series alloys, often called‘‘aerospace alloys.” Because the aerospace market is so specialized, we’llconcentrate our attention on the other, broader structural applications for aluminum,especially the construction market.

Of the semi-fabricated aluminum products used in construction, rolledproducts (sheet and plate) and extruded shapes, make up roughly two-thirdsand one-third, respectively, of the semi-fabricated products consumption inthis market, as shown in Table 2.6.The transportation industry also uses aluminum in signicant structuralapplications, including cars, trucks, buses, tractor trailers, rail cars, and ships.

At a rate of about 3 billion lb per year in the U.S. and an assumed installedprice of $ 5 per lb, the building market represents about $ 15 billion annually.What’s being built with all this moneyOne of the largest segments of this market is the aluminum curtain wallindustry. Beginning in earnest in the 1950s with the United Nations Buildingin New York City and the Alcoa Building in Pittsburgh (Figure 2.5), aluminumcurtain walls began to play a signicant role in modern building construction.

These walls act like large curtains hung from the building frame,serving to maintain a weather-tight envelope while resisting wind loads andtransmitting them to the frame. Vertical and horizontal extruded aluminummullions serve as the structural members (Figure 2.6). Aluminum extrusionsalso enjoy wide use as frames for doors and windows and in storefronts.Recently, standing seam aluminum roof sheeting has become a populararchitectural product. Some of these standing seam products are used as structuralmembers to span between roof purlins. Aluminum sheet is employedfor roong and siding for corrosive applications or for architectural appeal.

Building and Construction

Building and Construction Industry

The building and construction industry encompasses several different facets that all work together to create a new edifice. This new edifice can have any number of uses: residential, commercial, industrial or public.

Within the roles of building and construction are several specialties. It is very unlikely that a small, residential building and construction company will have a plumbing contractor and electrical contractor on staff whereas a large commercial building and construction company many have several plumbers and electricians working on various projects.

All building and construction projects begin on a drawing board. An architect will create plans and the customer will approve or request changes as the plans are made. As plans are finalized, the building and construction team will take over and physically build the new edifice. The edifice could be as simple as a small, residential home or a complex office building with several stories.

The first thing the construction team will do is dig a foundation for the new building. Depending on several factors, such as local building codes and requirements, the foundation could be as few as two feet or as many as several feet thick. Concrete is normally used and is reinforced with steel bars and wire.

Plumbing is normally put in next. This “roughing in” phase means the pipes and internal parts of the plumbing will be placed before being covered. Each pipe will represent a general location of a toilet, sink or other plumbing fixture.

A framing team will come in after the concrete and plumbing to build the internal skeleton of the new building. For a home, it may be wooden beams but for a large building, steel girders may be used. As soon as the building is framed, it is time for the electrical team to come in and wire, but not connect, for the electricity in the new building.

Normally, a building inspector will be coming during or immediately after this phase to insure the safety of the wiring and the workmanship of the construction. This is necessary before the building’s internal structures can be covered with sheet-rock or the internal wall covering.

After the internal wall covering, the building is almost done. Windows, electrical outlets and lights, flooring and painting is all that will be left and the building will be complete.
