Greenhouse & Attached Chicken Coop
Two structures in one! This custom year-round solar greenhouse includes an attached chicken coop on the north side. The greenhouse provides added insulation and source of warmth for the chicken coop. Likewise, the chicken coop protects the greenhouse. An internal wall divides the two environments, preventing smells and contaminants from entering the greenhouse. When combined, the structures are more energy-efficient and productive year-round.
Ceres created the custom greenhouse design, and provided turn-key installation. The pre-fabricated greenhouse was delivered to site on a flat bed truck and installed in less than a day. The owners chose custom barn-wood siding to match the look and feel of their home. You can read more about the custom greenhouse and chicken coop design in our article for Mother Earth News.
