Design Concept | Medium Self-Sufficiency Package
Self-Sufficiency packages take the guesswork out of what to buy…
Whether you’re thinking food security, food chain purity of what you eat, or the active lifestyle that backyard farming enables… our Medium Self-Sufficiency Package takes the guesswork out of what to buy.
We take the best of the best of our products and conveniently combine them. Our exclusive zoom support packages are also only offered with the purchase of these packages. Not only gain access to top-notch products that Roost & Root sells, but gain access to the people who make them and use them every day.Our packages are not for everyone, but if your budget allows, they are great ways to dive into the world of backyard farming.
Products are handcrafted from 100% Real Cedar and will last many years with or without painting. Value: If you were to source your own materials, design, and build a quality product, the cost and the time would make our price a better deal. Purchased as a DIY Kit. Shipped in palletized crates via freight and packaged within standard-sized freight limits to save shipping costs. Pre-drilled holes allow for two people with only a cordless drill and a measuring tape. Screw bits and everything else you need are included in the kit.
Our Loft Chicken Coop is made with heavy-duty 16-gauge galvanized predator-proof welded wire. No chicken wire, no hardware cloth. As safe of a coop, there is. Keep up to 10 hens full-time in this coop in its standard configuration.
Included integrated EZ-Fill Feeder and EZ-Fill Watering system included. Feed and water your flock standing up outside the coop! No cleaning of stinky waterers or messy feeders doesn’t take up valuable run space. No-Poop 4+ day supply optional feeder. No-Poop 4+ day supply waterer that can be freeze protected.
Our Slant-Roof Greenhouse uses UV Protected ultra-clear 6mm Polycarbonate wall panels to transmit more light than any other brand. Clearer than most glass and withstands high heat and super sub-zero temperatures. The 3/16 thick solid HDPE panels on the bottoms provide strength, splash protection and are puncture-proof. Black HDPE & Poly Twin-Wall panels are dado inset and won’t blow out unexpectedly.
Slant-Roof Greenhouse panels are preinstalled on scissor-style frames that can be installed from the ground with no climbing on top during installation. Preinstalled closure strips keep out unwanted guests. All vents have large mesh screens that allow bees and ladybugs in but keep birds out while back vents have our beautiful hand-crafted cedar wood louvers.
Raised Garden Beds feature blind inset panels and “lap joints” which are both beautiful and strong. Provided bolts (much stronger than screws) connect each panel to another resulting in a strong, and quick-to-assemble product.

Region & Climate Considerations
Airflow in a chicken coop is your biggest concern whether it's summer or winter. Chickens are much more susceptible to respiratory infections from stagnant air than they are getting too cold. Our storm panels are used to provide extra protection from either excessive wet periods or excessive cold periods and are designed to fit loose enough to still allow for airflow. Any snow or rain that gets by is reduced to an amount that is not problematic. The following information is intended to give guidance for the use of this coop and if our optional storm panels are needed or not.Snow/Storm Panels:
Extreme storms can bring too much of a good thing to the outdoor areas of any coop. Our snow/storm panels are for the run areas of your coop and add temporary extra protection for extreme sideways-driven stormy weather in hot or cold seasons. Panels keep sideways rain and wind-driven snow from making things too sloppy in the run areas that chickens hang out in during the day. They are designed to be attached and detached during inclement conditions in warm or cold seasons, only when needed.Panels are thin so they can bend to the shape of your new coop and are "translucent" to let light in. Where needed, ventilation is added to panels to make sure they do not cut off too much air circulation while still being able to protect your flock from... umm, fowl weather. Panels will not make your coop "waterproof" but will knock out the vast majority of wind-driven snow and rain in the "outdoor" run areas.Freeze Protection:
All coop waterers are shipped with a slotted cap that allows the water to breathe air as the water goes down. We make the slot big enough to allow a cord of an immersible heater to go through too. Based on feedback, submersible fish tank-style heaters work best. Presumably, it keeps the body of water in the tank warmer.Poultry Nipples:
Keeping the water from freezing is half of the battle. The nipple can freeze too if exposed to a direct sub-zero wind chill. That's why we create and sell a No Freeze 3D Printed Poultry Nipple that you may want to consider as an optional upgrade if you live somewhere cold.Considerations for Zones 2-4Adult well-adjusted region-appropriate full-sized breeds will do fine. Place your coop in a well-protected area from North winds if possible. Extended use of storm panels to protect from too much snow accumulation and sub-zero winds will be necessary. Knock piling snow off the roof as needed.Considerations for Zones 5-8Adult well-adjusted region-appropriate full-sized breeds will do fine in this coop with the use of our storm panels during periods of extreme cold or rain.Considerations for Zones 9-10Adult or juvenile region-appropriate breeds as well as bantam breeds will do fine in this coop with the use of our storm panels during periods of extreme cold or rain or if birds are fully grown and not a bantam breed, use of storm panels would be considered optional. How to Keep Your Chickens Cool in the Summer HeatGreenhouseGreenhouses must be staked down to avoid toppling in greater than Tropical storm force winds (>40mph) but the panels themselves are tested to 80 mph winds.Shade cloth should be used in hot summer months in all regions when the temperature of the greenhouse exceeds the limits of the plants you are trying to grow.Air exchange in the greenhouse is needed to expel oxygen and take in carbon dioxide. Our AVM system can maximize this exchange and help ventilate your greenhouse better in hot conditions, and only as needed in colder conditions.
