Barry’s daughter, Samantha, shared her dad’s loft with the Showcase
Lofts. Here she tells of his progress:
“He recently retired and moved to North Carolina from New Jersey at the
end of 2007 after approximately 20 years in the postal service. After a
health scare that kept him home on medical leave for almost a year in 2005,
my mom convinced him to retire. To occupy his time in between working on
their new home my dad decided to return to a hobby he left when work and
family took priority. He completed building his coop and named it
His program is small, with pigeons he has carefully selected with my mom's
assistance searching specifically for health and quality. He built his coop
on his own using siding that matches their home. The size of the coop is 20
ft by 6 ft and is divided into a section for the flyers and a section for
the breeders with a 4 ft walkway in between. He used Plexiglas to allow for
sufficient air and light and screened in aviaries in the front to allow for
more freedom for the birds. He used latticework for the doorways into each
section and also to complete the nest fronts as well as the inside ceiling.
It has a slatted floor with trays underneath to keep cleaning simple. The
home and coop is situated on the side of a mountain and has fantastic views.
Here are some photos, which shows the building process as well as the
finished project. The process has taken approximately 2 months and is
continuously being improved.
