Chapel HIll resident Simon Vincent, 63, a design/build remodeling contractor worked this past spring weekends and in his spare time using mostly recycled and leftover building materials from past jobs to create a purpose-built  8X12 ft. chicken coop for his new backyard flock of pullets. The coop with a number of  amenities features an 8X8ft. run area in front with an insulated 4X8 coop area. The coop helped Vincent solve a design problem with his backyard, and also built  the coop to meet the birds' needs. Photo by Harry Lynch
