A centre piece for your garden

Octagonal 7'6" diameter (230cm including roof overhang) and standing some 7' tall

This octagonal hen house has the "wow factor" to be the focal point of your garden.

Attractive octagonal chicken house with solid wood roof. Self-contained on two levels with upstairs perching and nesting area with pophole so the chickens can be secured at night. Three doors at the rear for wide access and easy cleaning. Walk-in chicken run. Suitable for keeping 4-6 large chickens or 6-8 bantams. This is designed as a static hen house.
The person door and pop hole can be positioned in several of the front panels to suit your specific requirements.

A pop hole from the run area to garden can be added as an optional extra, so your girls can access your garden without having to leave the person door open. (Choose "Optional garden pop hole" above).

This is a bio-secure run. The roof covers both the house and the run, protecting your chickens from wild birds and their droppings.


We have a unique range of poultry housing developed through nearly 35 years of experience. All are made in high quality materials and to precise specifications which we have found to provide the most convenient, comfortable and vermin-proof accommodation possible. All designs take careful consideration of :

• The internal positioning of perches, popholes, droppings boards and nest boxes.
• Accessibility, both for you and the chickens.
• Ventilation without draughts
• Weather proofing and stability in windy conditions.
• Weight and manoeuvrability.
• Vermin control.
• Aesthetic appearance.

Many sizes and configurations of poultry housing are available and we are able to incorporate bespoke customer requirements in some models.
Most are produced with Onduline roofing sheeting. This is a washable, light-weight, hard-wearing bitumen board.
Designed by us, built by us, delivered by us. We have never made houses or coops for anyone else!
A note about wooden houses:- Timber has character and charm and that is why we like working with it. But it is a natural product subject to variations such as shrinkage when it is hot and dry, and swelling or expansion when it is persistently humid and wet. Our carpenters have used their expertise to built tolerances into the designs to accommodate most situations, but you may still observe occasional seasonal and weather movement in the timber. Our head carpenter selects timber carefully, and it will still have some character features such as knots. Our carpenters try to position these so they look great, but don’t cause problems. You might find though, that over time a smear of mastic will be required here or there to re-seal any areas where water seeps in. Before delivery the wood parts of your house are treated with Timbertex by AquaTec Coatings Ltd. This is a water based stain and protection specially suitable for pet and animal houses. It doesn’t last forever though, and you should consider painting with a good quality treatment annually to maximise the life of your new house.

"I have just taken delivery of the large octagonal hen house and it’s beautiful. From order to delivery took just two weeks and you can conveniently track the drivers arrival. The carpenter who handmade it, also delivered it and erected it and the sturdy house was ready within an hour.  He talked us through the structure and advised us on how to protect it. Moreover it’s a lovely looking, good quality building that makes a wonderful addition to our garden."  D Bishop October 2021

" Brilliant service! Thank you so much for my beautiful chicken house! " 5 Stars - NourseWright October 2022.

The timber for our houses is normally treated with an animal friendly water based wood treatment called TimberTex made for us by Aquatec Coatings. However, some customers prefer their wooden houses treated with traditional creosote.

We can do this for you.

If you select this option, we construct the house panels in our workshop and then hand paint them it inside and out with tradtional creosote (Not the subsitute sold in DIY stores, we will use proper original coal tar creosote).
